Join us on Friday, December 11, 1:00 to 1:45 to meet Kevin Noble Maillard and Juana Martinez-Neal and hear about their award-winning picturebook, Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story.

Kevin and Juana will share their picturebook and their process of writing and illustrating, invite children to create their own family stories, and answer questions.
