Jamaica is most recently the author of her first children’s book Party:A Mystery, with captivating illustrations by Ricardo Cortés.The acclaimed author doesn't seeParty(or any book!) as a "children's book," but rather an imaginative story born from a fascinating series of events. Listen for Jamaica's process and perspective that spans far past her latest publication... and hear what she's never told anyone else!!!
