'Fry Bread' Celebrates Native Heritage


A favorite family recipe has the power to pass love and culture down through generations. Our guest on this week's "Cityscape," the author Kevin Noble Maillard, believes in this power so much that he decided to write a book about it, highlighting his own heritage and hoping he can reach a new audience with it.

Maillard’s new children’s book, Fry Bread, is a celebration of Native American family tradition through a delicious dish. With Juana Martinez-Neal’s illustrations, the book shows a culture that Maillard says is all too often excluded from children’s literature.
