On his first East Coast book tour, best-selling children’s author ('A is for Activist' and others) and activist Innosanto Nagara shares his new picture book, 'The Wedding Portrait',’ a celebration of civil disobedience that speaks directly to young readers' sense of right and wrong and offers adults a powerful, lyrical story to talk with kids about equity, justice, and why sometimes we must break the rules.

'The Wedding Portrait' published by Triangle Square Books for Young Readers, 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. In brilliantly bright and inspiring illustrations we see ordinary people say No--to unfair treatment, to war, to destroying the environment. There has never been a more important moment for Innosanto Nagara's gentle message of firm resolve.

The event will feature a roundtable discussion with Wee The People about the author's creative process and the power of children's books to engage kids in social action.

In collaboration with Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, Papercuts J.P. and JP Reads.
