I’m teaming up with Amy Tai, a New York City public school elementary art school teacher, to create a monthly FREE Multicultural Children’s Book Club on behalf of Walking In Other People’s Shoes. Walking in Other People’s Shoes is a digital media platform inspiring women of color to find and empower their voices through storytelling and curated programs.

- Book talk
- Art Project
- Our Favorite Asian Snacks
- Surprise Guest
- Giveaway: Eyes That Kiss in the Corner, the sample artwork created by Amy Tai, and our favorite Asian Snacks
