The Cleveland Chapter of Chums, Inc. in collaboration with Hough Reads, participated in the Family Literacy Night at the Cleveland Public Library’s Hough Branch on July 5th. 


Cleveland Chums’ member, Chante Thomas, was the featured celebrity author at this event, sharing her recently published book, “Where I’m From,” illustrated by Cleveland based artist, Jennifer Price Davis.  It is a delightful book which truly celebrates the diversity and inclusiveness of our society.  This book will be a great addition to each elementary school classroom and library and is a great read for children and adults alike.
