Please note: This Tapestry of Voices event explores and expresses allyship with Black Lives Matter. TOV recognizes that action for justice on behalf of any marginalized group can benefit all marginalized groups. Our community is inclusive of every group that faces exclusion and inequality, and we invite all participants to bring ideas for future topics, meetups, and actions we can take as allies and advocates for change.

What is Tapestry of Voices?
An initiative in SCBWI North/East Bay for those who want to REACH, INCLUDE, and BELONG by:


• Creating children’s literature that reflects the rich tapestry of the world and the diversity of all the people who live in it.

• Celebrating all voices, and finding ways to center under-represented voices in our professional conversations, organization, and work.

• Supporting each other’s careers across all identities and experiences.


FREE EVENT! All children’s book writers and illustrators from all regions are welcomed.


Co-hosted by Natasha Tripplett and Michelle Quraishi.
