Black Diamond Author at the Library TODAY!

From 1 to 2 p.m. we'll have a conversation about the Coretta Scott King Book Award with author Fredrick McKissack Jr. who will share his perspective.
Mr. McKissack along with his mother, Patricia McKissack, received a 1995 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award for their book, Black Diamond: Story of the Negro Baseball League.
His book, Shooting Star, is one of the titles to be discussed at our first ACPL Mock Coretta Scott King Book Award Discussion and Election, which follows the conversation, and will take place from 2:15 to 5:00 p.m.
