Congrats! Good storytelling, and a nice way to present an unusual and interesting happening.
If you're thinking of children's books, then Penguin's WriteNow scheme
might be of interest - they're looking for books for children.
I don't know what their definition of 'under-represented community' is, or whether you'd be eligible, but it might be worth looking at to find out.
(They say 'not published', too but I suspect that they will mean books, not individual poems in journals or websites - although for all I know you have published a book, too!)
