Hi Kelly, I thought I had added you, but anyway, Just Us Books is from a former life I had in East Orange, NJ, my mother's hometown. I remember when the Hudson's started. All the best to them.

Hi again,
I spoke at the Harlem Book Fair this year and finally met Cheryl Hudson. She gave me her new catalog and I saw your books.
