Join us for a program with author Dawn Quigley! Dawn’s work Joey Reads the Sky is featured in Ancestor Approved: Intertribal Stories for Kids listed in NYPL’s Best Books for Kids 2021! In this author program we’ll be talking about JoJo Makoons: The Used-to-be Best Friend. You can check out all of these works from the NYPL collection. In this author talk there will be a cool presentation, a Q&A with the author and the audience, and a fun activity at the end!
