| E:499

Layla Saad joined the nerds for a special Zoom event to discuss her bestselling book Me & White Supremacy, the new guided journal which is now available, and the upcoming version she's working on for young readers. We also have a conversation about the publishing world and the experiences of black authors, and her wildly successful podcast. Thank you to everyone who attended and a special thank you to Layla, Sourcebooks, and our ASL interpreters.
