Program is FULL; waitlist inquiries please email

 (3 PDPs) In this workshop we will examine how to use picture books to provide "mirrors and windows" that reflect readers' identities and open their eyes to the world beyond their lived experiences. Participants will explore diversity in recent picture books, discussing ways to foster a child's critical engagement with them, and learn tools for conducting diversity audits of one's book collection. The session will also include exhibition tours of A Marriage of Artistry: Leo and Diane Dillon and Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards.
