Brown Girl and Brown Boy Book Launch Party and Reading
June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Get RED CARPET ready, because summer reading for kids has just got better and this exclusive event is all about the kids!
Professional Speaker and Best Selling Author, Dr. Pamela Gurley is releasing the first two books of her 20-book children’s series, Brown GIRL and Brown BOY. The first two installments, Brown Girl, Be SOCIAL, and Brown Boy, Be SOCIAL, are set to be released on June 3, 2021. Morgen Peters, Dr. Gurley’s protégé, will be reading the first two installments to introduce party guests to the dynamic duo of her series. These books are all about children embracing their social differences while maintaining self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-love. This event will set the tone for supporting child literacy around the world. The red carpet will start at 2:00 PM and the event will last until 3:30 PM.
Literacy is important and what better way to kick off summer reading than having black and brown kids see themselves in the books they read. As Dr. Gurley says, “Representation is not just about color. It is also about culturally setting a standard of excellence for our children.”
