Powell's Books Presents Kids' Storytime With Meena Harris
Today, author Meena Harris joins us for kids’ storytime to read from her new picture book, KAMALA AND MAYA’S BIG IDEA (illustrated by Ana Ramírez González) (Balzer & Bray/Harperteen). Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea is a beautiful, empowering book about two sisters who work with their community to effect change, inspired by a true story from the childhood of Meena Harris's aunt, US Senator and Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, and Meena's mother, lawyer and policy expert Maya Harris. One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: They would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground! Harris’s book is the uplifting story of children's ability to make a difference and of a community coming together to transform their neighborhood.
