Charles at UNC SILS

During his time as the Steinfirst Artist in Residence, Charles took time to meet with UNC SILS faculty and students. The Coalition of Youth Librarians organization (COYL) sponsored his visit to SILS. They discussed how he developed his program and how he gets inspiration for his books.

Charles also took the time to talk to a PhD student about African American representation in children’s literature, and his perspectives and experiences being an African American author who is committed to writing about African American experiences.
