ROGERS, Ark. (KFTA) — The Rogers Public Library hosted a special free event Saturday afternoon that promoted Black authors and illustrators of children’s books.

The event featured Author Ashley Franklin, Author and Publisher Wade Hudson, and Illustrator J’Aaron Merchant, who all described what led them to create children’s literature and illustrations featuring Black children.

Attendees of the free event were treated to free food, book giveaways, and book readings and signings.
