Jocelyn Dabney publishes first book


Jocelyn Dabney, nationally recognized storyteller and Youngstown resident, has published her first picture book, “Nana Bea & Me.”

This book was inspired by Jocelyn’s granddaughter, Jerrica, and her other grandmother, Ann. The story shows just how important grandparents are in the lives of their grandchildren.
