A LIKKLE MISS LOU: We deh yah
A LIKKLE MISS LOU deh yah! A LIKKLE MISS LOU: How Jamaican Poet Louise Bennett Coverley Found Her Voice is here! It gives me great pleasure to share that the project I had been working on for the past seven years, my sixth picture book, was released into the world on August 15, 2019, illustrated by Eugenie Fernandes, published by Owlkids. In the words of the late author Toni Morrison, "[this is the] book I wanted to see in the world". Most of all, the book has been completed in time for the 100th anniversary celebration of Miss Lou's birthday. And we're not the only ones talking about it. Check out this link to see what the reviewers from such publications as Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, The Toronto Star, OpenBook, Booklist, and The Globe & Mail are saying about A LIKKLE MISS LOU. On August 15, there was a lovely A LIKKLE MISS LOU birthday celebration held at the Historic Joy Kogawa House in Vancouver, BC, Canada where I was the writer in residence in summer 2019. This was the perfect warm-up to the upcoming A LIKKLE MISS LOU Book Launch to be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 3-5pm at A Different Booklist bookstore in Toronto, ON, Canada and tour (see below and check for updates here). I hope you will join us in celebration and purchase your copy. A LIKKLE MISS LOU soon come to a city near you! Walk good!
