Author Ronnie Anderson will speak Saturday at the Galvez branch of the Ascension Parish Library.

Anderson, who grew up in Baton Rouge, says that when he searched for fairytales for his daughters, he was shocked that none had people of color in them. So he created Anboran to tell captivating and inclusive stories. His fairytales include diversity, so children see themselves through each character.
