This Saturday will be the 25th Annual African American Children’s Book Fair in Philadelphia. The African American Children’s Book Project is a non-profit formed to promote children’s literature written by and/or about African Americans. Every year they hold a book fair in Philadelphia, which is one of the largest events for African American children’s literature in the country.
This year, illustrators Liz Zunon (The Legendary Miss Lena Horne) and Shadra Strickland (Loving Vs. Virginia) will be among the authors and illustrators participating in the event. They will be signing books from 1 to 4 pm. If you’re in the area, make sure to stop by and get a book signed!
