The DeKalb Public Library is teaming up with local community members to celebrate Black book creators! Each community member will read a book by a member of the African diaspora. Videos are posted on Mondays and Thursdays on the library’s YouTube channel throughout the month of February.

Here is the first video, featuring NIU’s Head Football Coach Thomas Hammock reading The King of Kindergarten.
