Yolanda T. Marshall is a Guyanese-born Canadian author. In 2015, after becoming a mom, Yolanda was inspired to write her first children’s book named Keman’s First Carnival. Yolanda is also the author of, A Piece of Black Cake for Santa, Sweet Sorrel Stand, Miles Away In The Caribbean and My Soca Birthday Party: with Jollof Rice and Steel Pans. Join Yolanda and Telling Tales volunteers who will help out as we create our very own carnival masks and steel pan drums! All materials will be supplied, just bring your imagination.

After the session, purchase a copy of C Is For Carnival at Different Drummer Books (on-site), and Yolanda will sign it at the nearby Autograph Tent, beginning at 11:15AM.
