Saturday Children’s Story Hour

No Mirrors in My Nana’s House dust jacket

Travel across time and visit different parts of the world through the magic of reading. Our books acquaint us with people, places, and events, (both real and fictional) that shape our understanding of African Americans, others in the African diaspora, and peoples of the African continent.

Ysaye M. Barnwell, author of No Mirrors in My Nana’s House, reveals that beauty a young girl sees every day is in her grandmother’s eyes that are “like the rising of the sun.”   (October 19)
