Two years after I published my rhyming picture book about the housing crisis, we’re finally starting to see some policy change at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Mel Watt, the new director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, has announced that families in foreclosure will now be able to buy their homes back at fair market value. It’s a huge, hard-fought win that will keep up to 121,000 families in their homes–and we’ll keep fighting for more.
This weekend the books and I will be at two holiday fairs:
Saturday, December 13, Craft Fair and Bake Sale, Minnehaha Free Space, 3757 Minnehaha Ave, 1-5 pm
Sunday, December 14, Makers & Bakers: craft fair and bake sale fundraiser, Southpoint Community Acupuncture, 1510 E Lake Street, 2-6 pm
If buying books in bookstores is more your jam, I recommend Boneshaker Books, where this book rotates between the Politics and Children’s sections. You can also always order them here on this website. Thanks for all your support!
