Program Description


Join the Library on the Go van for an afternoon with local author and TEDx speaker Fleurie Leclercq at Paseo Nuevo, as she shares her inspiring journey and captivating stories that celebrate African roots and culture. Families can join in for the chance to engage in activities together and listen to Fleurie Leclercq read her book during storytime.

Fleurie Leclercq was born in Cameroon and grew up with her grandmother, "Mamie Marguerite," in the Bankole Hills of Yaounde. She is proud of her African roots and culture and thankful to her loving grandma who taught her to stand strong and keep her head up, whatever life's challenges. Under her grandma's nurturing wing, Fleurie learned to work hard and to love and care for others. Thus she grew up with the self-confidence to follow her dreams. She named her daughter, Marguerite, after her grandmother. Through her stories, Fleurie shows the beauty and culture of Africa and creates a heroine that children can look up to. She wants to inspire children of the world, especially children of African descent, to tell their stories and be proud of their origins and culture.
