The Loft Literary Center says
Vaunda Micheaux Nelson will discuss how books and writing help navigate life and the roles bookstores and libraries play. The author will give special focus to her great uncle, Lewis Michaux, and his National Memorial African Bookstore of Harlem’s past.

Vaunda Micheaux Nelson is the author of many books for young readers, including Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal, which won the Coretta Scott King Award in 2010, and No Crystal Stair, which won a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction in 2012. Vaunda is a youth services librarian at the public library in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, where she lives with her husband.

Books: Compass in the Storm is free and open to the public. This event (along with the immediately following Radical Nonfiction Storytelling with Andrew Karre) kicks off the Children's and Young Adult Literature Conference (May 1–3, 2015).
