Laurie Ann Thompson will celebrate the launch of her picture book, Emmanuel's Dream, at the Bellevue UBS on January 6 at 6:00 p.m. Find more details here, and Laurie requests RSVPs, if possible. (But show up regardless!)
The book tells the inspiring true story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, who was born in Ghana with one deformed leg. He eventually became a cyclist, riding an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana to spread a powerful message: disability is not inability.
The book, illustrated by Sean Qualls, is a Junior Library Guild selection and made the Winter 2014–2015 Kids’ Indie Next List! (Yay, Laurie!) Get yours!
