Authors Afternoon

Tamara B. Rodriguez

Tamara B. Rodriguez is the author of Hair to the Queen!, an illustrated children’s book that empowers adults to discuss cancer with children in a simple, compassionate way. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, Tamara wanted to talk about the disease with her two young daughters, but struggled to find the right words. To help families start the conversation in a light-hearted and fearless way, Tamara decided to write Hair to the Queen! which was inspired by her personal experience.
