Get ready for the 5th annual LEAD Girls Rising Expo!
This year we will welcome 5th to 9th grade girls. We have confirmed the author Kelly Starling Lyons, an award-winning author whose 17 titles span easy readers, picture books, chapter books, fiction, nonfiction, and series.
Among the accolades Lyons’ books have received: Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People, Best of the Year and state award lists, Junior Library Guild selections, a Caldecott Honor, and a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor. Lyons is a founding member of The Brown Bookshelf, a team dedicated to raising awareness of Black children’s book creators.
At this year’s Expo, we will add a Book Fair “Pop Up,” so our girls can self-select books, at no cost, to grow their home library!
