I'deyah visited 135 3rd graders at Skinner West Elementary School in Chicago on March 6, 2020. She talked about her journey as a young author and the importance of reading and writing. Each student received a free copy of her book, Lyla Lyte and the Li'berry Fruit. I'deyah will return for a 2nd visit to have an open discussion about what they read.
