Book Dedications by Kelly Starling Lyons

  • This book is dedicated to Azari Ayindé
    Going Down Home with Daddy
  • For my children, who love to rock hats. For my mom, who bought me my first one. And for Aunt Anna, Ms. Betty, and the generations of Black milliners whose hats dazzle and inspire.
