Excursion No. 8: Skin

We joined in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Skin I’m In by author Sharon Flake at CLP-Homewood with a staged reading of a new play based on the book. The Skin I’m In is a realistic fiction novel published by Hyperion Books. It depicts the story of seventh grader Maleeka Madison who has low self-esteem because of her dark skin color. All participants received a copy of the book.
