Adventure & Mystery: Jewell Parker Rhodes & Nisi Shawl

The Judy Kafoury Center for Youth Arts (The Judy) 1000 SW Broadway T100, Portland, OR

Jewell Parker Rhodes's version of Treasure Island is like none you’ve never seen—one that takes the reader through little-known Black history, and under the city of Manhattan itself. Nisi Shawl has written wonderful middle-grade fantasy debut about Black families, family history, family curses ... and a really marvelous pair of spectacles. Moderated by Vera Ahiyya.
