Literary Las Vegas: Frances Richards

Las Vegas author Frances Richards feels that explaining differences in skin color to children can be challenging. That’s part of why she wrote the book “Hey Little Girl, She’s Got Swirl.” The children’s picture book, illustrated by Misba Sultana, is designed to help children embrace their own natural beauty. Through the analogy of an ice cream swirl, Richards tells a story based on her biracial granddaughter Penelope. Visit drfrancesrichards.com.
