2021 Diversity in Children's Literature Symposium
2021 Diversity in Children's Literature Symposium: “Listening, Learning, Creating Communities,” followed by the Walter Dean Myers Awards for Outstanding Children's Literature ceremony. This event, co-hosted by We Need Diverse Books, will demonstrate how diversity in children's books helps us better understand each other, resulting in a stronger sense of community. The symposium will be followed by the conferring of the Walter Awards, named for the late Myers, former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Award-winning librarian and educator Deborah D. Taylor will moderate. Participants in the symposium will include Traci Chee (“We Are Not Free”), Robin Ha (“Almost American Girl”), Daniel Nayeri (“Everything Sad Is Untrue”) and Kacen Callender (“King and the Dragonflies”).
