Yesterday, I woke and totally realized that I was kicking off the first installment of Third Saturdays brought to you by Virtual Arizona Pride. I know, sometimes I am a little late to the party. But I eventually show up!
I had a fabulous time reading for you all at Drag Story Hour – Arizona’s Virtual Story Hour with Felicia Minor, sponsored by Bookmans Entertainment Exchange. If you didn’t get to see it the video is above. I loved this selection and variety. The audience participation was amazing.
Here are the books I read:
- “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swiss”, Lil Miss Hot Mess (author) & Olga de Dios (Illustrator)
- “Annie’s Plaid Shirt”, Stacey B. Davids (author) & Rachel Balsaitis (illustrator)
- “When Aidan Became a Brother”, Kyle Lukoff (author) & Kaylani Juanita (illustrator)
- “Sightseeing with Sandy: Fun in the Bahamian Sun”, Shambrekiá Wise & Sandiya Badmus (authors), Catherina Parasio (illustrator)
I loved reading the books. I especially loved reading “Sightseeing with Sandy: Fun in the Bahamian Sun,” by Shambrekiá Wise & Sandiya Badmus. I have had the chance to connect with Shambrekia via a free masterclass by Paul Carrick Brunson. She talked about how to get the book off the ground. Things lead to me reading her book on the virtual story hour as well as a contest with Drag Story Hour – Arizona.
At the time of this blog being published, the contest is still running:
