All ages are welcome to explore how a trip to the barbershop is anything but ordinary!
Award-winning author, Derrick Barnes, will discuss the making of Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut, a picture book that crackles with energy and style. Derrick Barnes and illustrator Gordon C. James are the creative team behind Crown, recipient of the Newbery, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King Author, and Coretta Scott King Illustrator awards.
According to Kirkus Reviews: Crown oozes "black cool and timely, much-needed black joy, using the unique and expansive experience of the barbershop to remind young boys that their inner lives have always mattered there.”
