Literacy Awards Banquet Keynote: Angela Lane


angelalaneMiami native, Angela Lane, grew up in Miami-Dade County, Florida, “in a world of endless possibilities limited only by self.”  The daughter of a Pentecostal minister, Ms. Lane traces some of her writer’s inspiration back to the sights and sounds in her father’s small church.  She explains, “I’m convinced that we are a product of our environment; it’s just that mine incorporated fantasy and faith.”

Ms. Lane’s debut picture book, Mommy, There’s A Giraffe in My Room!, was featured at the 2007 Miami Book Fair International and honored with a spot on the Florida Department of Education summer reading list, Just Read Florida! 2009.

Ms. Lane also serves as a legislative assistant to Florida State Representative Kionne McGhee, she writes and acts in contemporary stage plays, and she shares her love of books with young students on school visits.

The mother of three children, Ms. Lane lives in Miami with her husband, Robert.
