Join local writer and outreach specialist Araceli Esparza and children's book author Vaunda Micheaux Nelson (via Skype) to discuss Nelson's book BAD NEWS FOR OUTLAWS: THE REMARKABLE LIFE OF BASS REEVES, DEPUTY U.S. MARSHAL. Bad News for Outlaws reveals the story of a remarkable African American hero of the Old West. As part of the event, the Central Library will offer a prominent display of books and library resources featuring past and present Black Americans, and in keeping with the cowboy theme will offer cowboy-themed crafts and activities. This is one of several library events celebrating Black History Month.
