No, Really. Some Kids Do Read.

Contrary to popular media narrative, there are still young people in America who read books. Libraries still serve as place for children to be swept away by on trails of adventure or romance. This hope that literature will forever remain a cornerstone of the human experience is an impetus for Tulisoma, the South Dallas Book Fair. Tulisoma is Swahili for “we read” and this a two-day festival has made its mission to explore the Southwest African-American experience in books and story. The events are spread out throughout Dallas with a featured performance from Luenell at the Majestic Theatre (1925 Elm St.) at 8 p.m. Friday. Tickets to her performance start at $40 and are available through the box office, 214-670-3687. For a full round-up of events visit
