I’m thrilled to announce a new picture book through Red Comet Press. We Sing from the Heart: How the Slants® Took Their Fight for Free Speech to the Supreme Court by Mia Wenjen, illustrated by Victor Bizar Gomez. This is the story of Simon Tam, the leader of the popular all-Asian-American dance-pop band, The Slants®, and his nine-year battle to trademark his band’s name.
Changing the Game: Asian Pacific American Female Athletes is my Kickstarter book, created in collaboration with 22MediaWorks. It’s available via my website and Amazon. Scholastic will include it in their flyers and book fairs starting June of 2023.
