So I went to the Decatur Book Festival this weekend, and what a good time it was! On Saturday I had the chance to listen to Angie Thomas being interviewed about her groundbreaking book "The Hate You Give," on Sunday I listened to Ijeoma Oluo speak about her phenomenal book "So You Want To Talk About Race", and I also got the chance to speak in front of kids about "Mommy's Khimar" on the children's book panel!
My one regret was missing the kidnote and keynote speaker but I'll definitely clear my schedule to make sure I see them next year.
This was my first time attending, and I promise it won't be my last. And a wonderful shout out to Claire Almon for stopping by--she's an amazing illustrator who I love to stalk on Instagram. Thank you so much, Claire! :)
