Events, Week of August 25, 2020

Check back during the week.  New events and information will be added as they are announced.
August 25

The third part of the series, Black Voices: Pushing for Change in Children’s Book Publishing, focuses on how creators, the publishing industry and book loving-community can disrupt racism and make a difference. We received more than a hundred questions over the past two webinars. We devote this session to answering as many as we can and continuing the conversation: How can we center Black creators and create change that endures?

Panelists include, Kwame Alexander, Judy Allen Dodson, Troy Johnson, Torrey Maldonado, Dr. Kimberly N. Parker, and Kelly Starling Lyons. The conversation will be moderated by Cheryl Davis. Register here.
