Cheryl Willis Hudson is vice president and editorial director of Just Us Books, an independent publisher of black-interest books for children and young adults. She has written many books for children. In her new book My Friend Maya Loves to Dance, a young narrator tells readers about her friend Maya, who absolutely loves to dance. She can’t get enough of dance: the costumes, the grand entrances, the pirouettes, the music, the final bow, and the magic of recitals. She even loves the hard work of practice. But why doesn’t her friend dance, too? As part of our ongoing celebration of Black History Month, Greenlight is honored to host Cheryl to present a story of creativity and friendship among children of all kinds.
