About this Item

Title
Meg Medina and Jerry Pinkney: National Book Festival 2021
Summary
Meg Medina, author of "Merci Suárez Can't Dance" (Candlewick), and Jerry Pinkney, author of "The Little Mermaid" (Little, Brown), discuss their new books. In the sequel to "Merci Suárez Changes Gears," Merci takes on seventh grade with all its travails of friendship, family and love. Pinkney's book imaginatively reinvents the classic mermaid's tale. Bonus content: Library educator Andrea Lewis invites kids and families to explore dance resources from the Library's website, including a dance battle performed by dancers from Urban Artistry that was part of the American Folklife Center's Homegrown concert series in 2017.
