A few months ago, I shared this drawing:
And now I’m excited to share that this drawing is on a whole bunch of T-shirts:
Even better, funds from the sales of the shirt will help support The Author Experience, as well as other organizations and efforts that work for book access equity:

The Author Experience is an organization that works to support the literacy growth of students in communities facing economic challenges. Through a unique collaboration with schools, The Author Experience delivers a sustainable program grounded in the transformative power of story.
Our goal is to build a lasting culture of literacy—one in which students, their families, and educators craft their stories and develop their voices together. The pillars of The Author Experience are author partnerships, family engagements, and targeted professional development.
Participating students demonstrate increased confidence, self-efficacy, and literacy proficiency. In addition, the students and adults in the greater school community become more connected.
