Award-winning children's book author and illustrator Don Tate will be coming to entertain, interact and inspire us at our new City Council Chamber/Community Room on Friday, June 15 at 3 p.m. Some of the books Mr. Tate illustrated include The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch (a 2017 Bluebonnet selection) and Woosh! Lonnie Johnson's Super-Soakin Stream of Inventions and many, many more. In addition to his writing and illustrating Mr. Tate is a founding host of The Brown Bookshelf (https://thebrownbookshelf.com) –a blog dedicated to books for African American young readers; and a member of the #WeNeedDiverseBooks organization, created to address the lack of diverse, non-majority narratives in children’s literature.
We are very excited to have Mr. Tate here to speak with us! Please join us afterwards, we will be selling some of his books and he will be available for book signing. We do expect for this to be a highly attended program, the room will open thirty minutes prior to the event and will be on a first-come, first- served basis.
Mr. Tate's visit is funded courtesy of a Texas Reads grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
