Meet the Author! Shadra Strickland

Acclaimed artist Shadra Strickland's author/illustrator debut book, Jump In!, will make readers of all ages get up on their feet! On a sunny spring day, the tic tac tic tac sound of jump ropes hitting the ground floats through the wind as everyone lines up for a turn. Young to old, double dutch to hip-hop tricks, everyone jumps in until the street lights start to flicker and it's time to . . . jump out!

Shadra Strickland is the illustrator of the picture book Bird, winner of the Ezra Jack Keats Award and the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent in 2009.  She is also the co-illustratrator of Our Children Can Soar, winner of a 2010 NAACP Image Award.  She teaches illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art. 

All attendees will receive a FREE copy of the book and a jump rope!
