About

Join Page 158 Books for storytime with Jessica Norwood, author of BED HEAD. This event will be held in front of the store and broadcast live over Facebook. We will be following all current Covid guidelines.

BED HEAD is the first of the Your Hair is Magic books, a series focused on the beauty of big, curly, knotty hair. Rooted in realism and representation, these books are all about promoting self-love and building confidence, one curl at a time. Activity sheets will be provided for those attending in-person and there will be a Q and A with the author for caretakers with questions about curly hair.

Jessica F. Norwood, M.Ed., is the founder & owner of Knotty Girl Publishing, LLC, and author of the Your Hair is Magic line of books. Born and raised in Germany (where her big, dark, curly hair always stood out), it took her a long time to love her curls. Now, she is on a mission to make sure curly kids everywhere see themselves represented in her books, and learn to love their hair (and the rest of themselves) right from the start. Jessica lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband, two curly kids, and straight-haired dachshund (whom they love nonetheless).
