Lift Every Voice Virtual Book Club: Lynnette Mawhinney, Lulu the One and Only

The Ivy is excited to welcome acclaimed author, scholar and educator Dr. Lynnette Mawhinney, whose first children’s book, Lulu the One and Only, received a starred Kirkus Review. 

"This book does more than simply tell a single story of biracial experience: it talks about navigating everyday racism in sensitive, but frank, ways...All children will benefit from this pitch-perfect discussion of race, identity, complexity, and beauty."

Lulu loves her family, but people are always asking, “What are you?” Lulu hates that question. Her brother inspires her to come up with a power phrase so she can easily express who she is, not what she is. 

The book includes a note from the author, sharing her experience as the only biracial person in her family and advice for navigating the complexity of when both parents do not share the same racial identity as their children. 

Dr. Lynnette Mawhinney is an internationally celebrated professor of curriculum and instruction. She is chair of the Department of Urban Education and associate professor of Urban Education at Rutgers University-Newark. She is also affiliated faculty in the African American and African Studies Department. Her love for teaching has always been a deep passion.
