Help Philly writer Tanisha Chambers launch her first children's book, «Zuri and the Monster.»
Tanisha was born and raised in Philadelphia to Jamaican parents. She attended public school in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Martin Luther King High school. She later attended Rosemont College where she studied Accounting and later graduated May of 2011. During her time in college she wrote many stories and poetry for her women studies classes that brought back memories of her reading and writing stories.
Her inspiration to write Children books came when her mom had her little sister Zuri. Zuri challenged her to find her creativity again. Tanisha hopes to bring back the traditions of parents and kids taking the time out to read and enjoy the pleasures or small things in life. Tanisha hopes her books inspire and help others to find the stories within.
