Danbury Library and the Connecticut Humanities is pleased to host author Abdul-Razak Zachariah, winner of 2020’s CT Center for the Book Award in the Picture Book Category for his first book, “The Night is Yours” which he will share with participants, followed by a time for questions and answers.
“The Night is Yours” is a glowing, empowering picture book about a nighttime hide-and-seek game which celebrates blackness and self-confidence. Follow a young girl named Amani, as she plays an evening game of hide-and-seek with friends at her apartment complex, and discovers her own beauty and strength.
Abdul-Razak Zachariah is a distinguished graduate of Yale University and has worked to mentor and support youth of color.
