MONTCLAIR, NJ — Watchung Booksellers is pleased to host an in-store signing with Tracey Baptiste, children’s book author of “African Icons: Ten People Who Shaped History” on Sunday, October 24 at 2:00 p.m.

Black history began long ago with the many cultures and people of the African continent. Through portraits of ten heroic figures, New York Times best-selling author Tracey Baptiste takes readers on a journey across Africa to meet some of the great leaders and thinkers whose vision built a continent and shaped the world. National Book Award-winning author Ibram X. Kendi hailed Baptiste for “unveiling the myths about the African continent to young readers” and creating a great guide for young readers to pre-colonial Africa.

Families are welcome to come meet Ms. Baptiste and have a book personalized at this free event on Sunday, October 24 at 2:00 p.m.
