Upcoming Event
Friday, November 20, 2020 - 3:00pm

Tami Charles’s powerful new picture book, All Because You Matter, is a deeply personal story inspired by the birth of her son and her hopes for his future. Scenes of rich ancestral history serve as a reminder of collective strength as struggles of today are met with light, hope and love. The book’s lyrical tone repeats the crucial anthem of “you matter” for Black and Brown children who will see themselves lovingly portrayed and celebrated within the pages of the book. Achingly beautiful illustrations by award-winning artist Bryan Collier share a close up look at a cherished boy’s life.

Tami Charles is a former teacher and full-time author of picture books, middle grade and young adult novels and nonfiction. As a teacher, she made it her mission to introduce her students to all types of literature, but especially diverse books. Tami is the author of the middle grade novel Like Vanessa and the picture book Freedom Soup.
