Baptiste Paul, author of Dear You, Dream Big! at Boswell Book Company on Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30pm

Boswell hosts Baptiste Paul, Wisconsin author of books for children, for an event featuring his latest, Dear You, Dream Big!, a picture book that offers a rally cry of Black possibility and conveys a message of resilience and strength. It’s a book that’s perfect for fans of picture books like All Because You Matter and I Am Enough.

Paul’s new book is a personal, poetic, and uplifting affirmation from a Caribbean-born author that encourags today’s Black youth to reject those who wish to silence them, exclude them, and reject their talents with one powerful refrain. The book acknowledges the systemic barriers of entry to certain fields for people of color and questions why certain histories and truths have been left out of the history books. Paul powerfully calls on his own experiences to reject systemic racism and embrace positivity and self-love.

Perhaps a child wants to become an artist, or a scientist, or maybe even president. This lyrical anthem of Black pride celebrates Black creativity, leadership, and innovation. Even (especially!) when the path is hard, Paul’s book says Dear YOU: Dream BIG.

Baptiste Paul is a Caribbean-born author of books for young readers, including The Field, To Carnival, and Climb On!. He has also cowritten books with his wife, Miranda Paul, including titles such as Peace, Adventures to School, and I Am Farmer. He is a native Creole/Patois speaker who enjoys sharing stories about his experiences with anyone who will listen.
