INNOSANTO NAGARA: Reading & Book Signing for‘The Wedding Portrait’ at Sugar Hill Museum

Best-selling children’s author (A is for Activist and others) and activist Innosanto Nagara will share with us his new picture book, ‘The Wedding Portrait,’ a brilliant and inspiring book about crucial ideas regarding civil disobedience and direct action that will speak to young readers’ sense of right and wrong.  The Wedding Portrait is an essential book for kids featuring stories of direct action from around the world that are book ended by the author’s wedding story.
