When Daria Peoples-Riley heard her daughter say that she wanted to be a ballerina, she kept thinking about the odds against an African-American young woman in this field of dance.

She will be speaking about her book and participate in a special storytime and dance party at the Central Library and storytime at Reynolda Manor Branch between Nov. 16-17. Free and open to the public.
