Picture books offer some of the best openings for family discussions of social justice issues, so this year, we’re pleased to offer several conversations with the creators of new picture books that tackle timely themes in terms that will resonate with all members of the family. First up are writer Jacob Kramer and artist K-Fai Steele, whose new book Okapi Tale is a companion to their earlier book Noodlephant. This time, the animal inhabitants of Beaston take on capitalism and privatization with cooperation and creativity! Watch Kramer and Steele read their book in our on-demand video, and then tune in for this Q&A with author and racial justice educator Francie Latour. Tune in live for your chance to ask questions and interact with the book’s creators!
