A Story Like Mine: A Webinar About Inclusive Books

October 12, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Free

Books are one of the first tools kids use to learn about the world around them. In honor of National Book Month and Banned Books Week, you’re invited to join children’s literacy nonprofit SMART Reading and some special guests for a free webinar about why getting inclusive books into the hands and homes of children is so critical.

In a moment where efforts to ban books that include marginalized identities are on the rise nationally, we’ll discuss the impacts of these bans, why all children benefit from access to engaging, inclusive books, and what libraries and community organizations are doing to ensure kids have access to inclusive books. We’ll also discuss the benefits of books in students’ home language and tips for reading with kids.

Panelists include Jelani Memory of A Kids Co., Rachel Kimbrow of Linda Letra Bilingual Books, and Nancy Nightingale of Jackson County Library System.
