Meet Local Children’s Authors Karen Leggett Abouraya and Lulu Delacre (VIDEO)

Our schools reflect our changing demographics but what about our library books? Can our children see themselves represented when they look for a book to read?

On this episode of Connecting Our Community host Pat Shoemaker will introduce you to two local award winning children’s authors.

Karen Leggett Abouraya is a journalist and the author of Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egypt’s Treasured Books.

Lulu Delacre, a bilingual author and illustrator of Children’s books since 1980 has written many books. Lulu has also done lectures throughout the US and been honored both as a “Maryland Woman in the Arts” and as a “Write from Maryland Author.”
