NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Garcelle Beauvais is planning to share life lessons through a series of children's books.
A statement released Monday says the "Franklin & Bash" star has an agreement with Stranger Comics for three books that will "address identity issues relevant to many children today."
The series will be called "I Am." The first book, "I Am Mixed" with co-author Sebastian A. Jones, is coming out this fall. It will tell of a brother and sister and their mixed ethnicities.
A second book will be about children of divorce. Beauvais' parents were divorced, and she has been married twice.
The Haiti-born actress and mother of three is known for her roles on "The Jamie Foxx Show" and "NYPD Blue."
