Virtual Book Tours


From February 1 to February 26, 2008, we celebrated the release of my newest picture book, D is for Drinking Gourd: An African American Alphabet by hosting a Virtual Book Tour in conjunction with Black History Month. Teachers and students from schools in different parts of the country participated in this exciting event by sending in questions for special interviews.

If you missed the event, you can still enjoy the tour! Just start by reading the very first day, then progress through the posts day by day.

Teachers, you can share the tour with your students even now! And to make it more personal for them, I invite you to contact me at Find out how you can gather questions from your students to send to me for an online interview. I’ll post the interview when it best suits your schedule and dedicate a day on my blog to your students in your school!
