Coming Soon…

I’m pleased to announce my first scholarly writing in the field of children’s literature! Upon completing my Cultural Pluralism in Children’s and Adolescent Literature graduate-level course at Penn State last Summer, Dr. Yenika-Agbaw invited me to co-author a chapter with her in an upcoming publication.  I wholeheartedly delved into narrative theory, critical multicultural theory, semiotics, ideology, instructional strategies and publishing practices as a means to analyze some of Rachel Isadora’s fairy tale picture books. I’m grateful to Dr. Yenika-Agbaw and the editors for the opportunity to contribute and write for an audience beyond my graduate studies.  According to amazon.com, the release date will be October 15, 2013.
