David Miller, a 1999 OSI-Baltimore Community Fellow and a member of the Fellows Advisory Board, has just released a new children’s book Chef Toussaint, about a 9-year-old master chef who turns his grandmother’s recipes into award-winning dishes. He is the author of several other children’s books, including Khalil’s Way; Brooklyn’s Finest: The Green Family Farm; Gabe & his Green Thumb; and They Look Like Me.
On Monday, February 22, Miller will also take part in a Family Literacy Panel Discussion, sponsored by Baltimore City Public Schools’ Family Engagement team. The event will feature some of Baltimore’s African American authors sharing useful tips on how to encourage a love for reading. The event is free and open to all.

Besides being a Community Fellow, Miller is also on the OSI-Baltimore Fellows selection committee, and one of the community-based representatives on B’More Invested initiative, a project that explores new approaches to community-based grantmaking.
As part of his fellowship, Miller created the Dare to Be King curriculum, a comprehensive system for adolescent African American males that addresses anger, impulse control and decision making.
