Cynthia Reyes and Lauren Reyes-Grange, authors of the Myrtle the Purple Turtle series, spoke with NFOTA’s Kim Aubrey about writing for children, the origins of the Myrtle series, and their passion for reading in schools to encourage inclusivity.
In this series we feature interviews and discussions with Individual Artists, Leaders of Arts Groups and Organizations, Civic Leaders, and Arts Lovers in our county in Canada.
