Lots of Love From Selena Alko

When Selina Alko was young she lived in Vancouver, BC and now she lives in New York. When I was young I lived in Ohio, and now I live near Vancouver. Ironic? No. It is a great coincidence.

Selina's work is steeped in diversity. She works with her husband Sean Qualls in a lot of her projects (including the book below). In her post Selina uses her artwork instead of words to tell her story.


Summer was an especially busy one with my husband Sean Qualls and I collaborating on the art for another book together. Here are some sneak peaks... But, shhhhh, it's top secret!!! I think you can get the sense though, that it's another project celebrating diversity and promoting human understanding.

Our other books to date: Two Friends; Susan B Anthony and Frederick Douglass and The Case For Loving; The Fight for Interracial Marriage.

I'm very excited that this fall the movie LOVING is coming out based on the same story of Richard and Mildred Loving's struggle to help legalize interracial marriage that we tell in our picture book, The Case For Loving.

Please visit my website to learn more about me and my work with Sean and to see a schedule of upcoming events:

Happy Fall!

  1. Thank you, Selina, for sharing these marvellous picks. Interracial marriages are more and more common, but so few books actually talk about them. Why? We need more of those.
