An Open Book Foundation

We recently had the opportunity to share Gordon Parks' story with third and fourth graders at two schools in Washington D.C, made possible by An Open Book Foundation. I'll never forget this amazing experience! 

Signed copies of our book were given to third and fourth graders at two schools in Washington D.C. thanks to An Open Book Foundation.
