Woke Baby Family Book Festival with Story Times for the Kids!

Join us for a celebration of independent presses that publish justice-oriented children’s books, curated by Mahogany L. Browne, and a parallel reading of children’s books from the festival. A Cave Canem fellow and alumna of Poets House’s Emerging Poets Fellowship, Browne creates a vibrant space for youth between the page and spoken word as Artistic Director at Urban Word NYC.

Browne is an educator and spoken-word poet, as well as the author of several books, including Black Girl Magic (Roaring Brook Press, 2018) and a forthcoming book, Woke Baby, written for children ages zero to five.

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm Admission is free and open to the public. Poets House is an ADA-accessible facility.
