Diversity in Children’s Literature: Grades 2-8 with Cindy Rodriguez

February 10, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


Why do we need to diversify our book collections? Cindy will discuss the efforts that have been made by publishers and what teachers, parents, and librarians can do to help.

She will address how to get started with diversifying your collection, starting with a bookshelf inventory. She will also provide resources for attendees, offer some specific recommendations, and will have some books to give away!

Cost: $10 members / $35 new or renewing members (includes annual membership fee)
