Save the date: book launch for Sundee Frazier on June 12th!

Last month our school was lucky enough to have author Sundee Frazier visit during a staff meeting and talk to us about mixed heritage families. She is the author of Brendan Buckley's Universe and Everything In It, among other works.

I just heard that Sundee's latest book, The Other Half of My Heart, is coming out soon and we are all welcome at her book launch party. See details from Sundee below!

Please join me in celebrating the release of my new novel, which was recently called "funny and deeply affecting . . . an outstanding achievement" in a starred review from Kirkus.

Biracial twins Minni and Keira King made news around the world the day they were born--one came out "black" and the other "white." They are as close as two sisters can be, but a trip to the South to visit Grandmother Johnson and compete in a pageant for African-American girls will put their relationship to the ultimate test.

I'll read, answer questions, sign books, and enjoy talking with whoever can make it. If nothing else, come for the cupcakes! And kids are definitely welcome. If you are a teacher or librarian, please feel free to share this invitation with your students.
