Beatrice's Dream Finally Out!!!!

After several setbacks due to changes in the publishing industry and then riots in Kenya, Beatrice's Dream, a Story of Kibera Slum is a reality, at least book-wise.

This is a photo essay picture book which I wrote while visiting Nairobi on a school visit. I had the opportunity to work with photographer Wendy Stone and was able to spend time in Kibera slum, one of the largest slums in the world. There I met Beatrice, followed her through the day at school and after, and learned of her fears and hopes and dreams.

Find out more about this book at my website : Check out the book page and the teacher guide to lean more about Beatrice, the book and how it came to be.
Meet Beatrice and learn more about Kibera.
