Read It & Sleep: Chocolate Me

April 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Read It and Sleep’s 2018 season continues with Chocolate Me by Taye Diggs!

The boy is teased for looking different than the other kids. His skin is darker, his hair curlier. He tells his mother he wishes he could be more like everyone else. And she helps him to see how beautiful he really, truly is.

For years before they both achieved acclaim in their respective professions, good friends Taye Diggs and Shane W. Evans wanted to collaborate on Chocolate Me!, a book based on experiences of being African American, feeling different and trying to fit in as kids. Now, both men are fathers and see more than ever the need for a picture book that encourages all people, especially kids, to love themselves.

Join us as we welcome a special guest reader, and enjoy free snacks and a fun art activity. As always, the first 20 families in attendance go home with a free copy of the featured book!

Read It and Sleep takes place April 20 at 7 p.m.
