On January 26th, children's author Javaka Steptoe will be visiting Queen Anne Elementary as part of the Multicultural Children’s Literature Celebration week. Javaka’s latest book Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean Michel-Basquiat has received many starred reviews, has landed on multiple year- end, best-of lists and is widely considered to be a strong contender for ALA awards.
If you'd like to pre-order signed copies of any of Javaka's books, please fill out and return the order form to your child's teachers by January 19th (available below). 20% of book sales will be used to purchase multicultural literature for several low income, high free & reduced lunch schools in Seattle that have no library budget.
