MEET THE AUTHOR, MEEKA CALDWELL & FAMILY
She’ll say she never started out to be an author, which makes perfect sense because ironically her books found her while she was searching for them. Ultimately advocating for the Down Syndrome Community as a whole, immediately she found a void. Being a mother of a Black child with Down Syndrome, she noticed that there were few children’s books about Down Syndrome and none featuring a Black child. Meeka Caldwell wrote “A Friend Like Anian”, the first of a series, inspired by her son to show diversity and representation in the Down Syndrome Community.
Meeka Caldwell and her husband Terry live in Prince Georges County, Maryland and are parents to six children, with Anian being their youngest. She loves candles, cooking and reading a good book (wink)!
