Lydia Mays, Children's Book Author
I LOVE the focus on connecting artists with educational stakeholders and children. There is a vital need for this in the school systems and the arts in general, and I'm thrilled to offer any of my insight or experiences in writing children's books with young writers and creators.

I am a former elementary school teacher and college professor of early childhood education. My PhD is in literacy and my love is empowering children through the arts as a means to see and create more beautiful in the world. I am a social constructivist by nature, as my research, teaching, community and policy work focus on equity, empowerment and care.
