Influenced by her upbringing in Harlem, author and educator Yvette Cole strives to implement diversity, equity, and inclusion into her school’s daily curriculum. When she struggled to find a book to read to her class that was based on black history for younger audiences that was also fun and engaging, Yvette was inspired to write her first children’s book. Harriet’s Dinner Party, tells the story of ten-year-old Destiny who unknowingly steps into a new world where she has dinner at Harriet Tubman’s house along with other prominent African American Civil Rights heroes. A related craft follows the book reading. Signed paperback copies of “Harriet’s Dinner Party,” will be available for purchase for $15. For ages 6-10 with an adult partner.
