Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
from The Portland Observer:

Betty Before X is a middle grade, historical fiction novel inspired by the real life of Betty Shabazz, Malcom Xs wife. The book illuminates four poignant years in Betty's childhood and paints an inspiring portrait of a girl overcoming the challenges of self-acceptance and belonging that will resonate with young readers today.

The book has received high acclaim, including praise from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who said, "Today is a time when fearless and uncompromising leadership is needed, and this story answers the call. It should be an inspiration and playbook to all women today, both young and old, who, like Betty, are paving their own path of strength."
