CCSA scholars are all buzzing with excitement that one of their favorite authors is coming for a visit on Friday, October 23. Students have fallen in love with Sharon Flake, an African American woman who grew up in inner-city Philadelphia neighborhood. Flake writes about characters to which our students connect in a voice that validates their own. Our students quickly fell in love with her acclaimed book The Skin I'm In and pursued her second book, Money Hungry with similar intensity.
