    • Wee Are Every Good Thing: Celebrating and Affirming Our BIPOC Children with Wee the People (Virtual)

      Online,

      If you're a parent or educator of color, chances are you grew up rarely (or maybe never) seeing yourself reflected in the books that filled your local library or classroom. But today, in 2021, we are witnessing an #ownvoices movement - a renaissance of children's literature by Black, Latinx, Asian, and Indigenous creators. Join racial justice project Wee The People for a deep dive into the world of powerful, affirming, and gorgeously illustrated children's books by BIPOC authors and illustrators. Geared for audiences of color, this workshop will hold space for parents, caregivers, educators, artists, activists, clergy, clinicians, and others to share experiences as we explore a wide range of characters and themes in children's books, from Radiant Child to My Hair Is a Garden to I Am Every Good Thing. This workshop will be led by children's book author Francie Latour, whose award-winning picture book Auntie Luce's Talking Paintings tells an inter-generational tale of culture, community, and identity through a Haitian-American girl and her beloved aunt, an artist who lives in Haiti. This is a virtual event. A Zoom link will be sent to all registered particpants 1 hour before the event.
