Free Luncheon for Librarians Featuring 'Cameron Goes to School' Author

On April 10, Cameron Goes to School author Sheletta Brundidge will host a free luncheon for Minnesota's librarians. 

Cameron Goes to School was born out of Brundidge's daughter's desire for a book about a child like her - an African American girl with autism. The book is published by Beaver's Press Pond, written by Brundidge and Lily Cole and illustrated by Darcy Bell-Myers.

Librarians will receive a free copy of Cameron Goes to School at the luncheon. Brundidge is also donating books to school libraries all over Minnesota. Read more about Free Luncheon for Librarians Featuring 'Cameron Goes to School' Author
