Portrayals of Latinx Families in Children's Literature

Oralia Garza de Cortés, cofounder of the American Library Association's Pura Belpré Award, leads a discussion with four authors whose works not only reflect Latinx family culture, but also celebrate it. We'll take a look at everything from picture books to young adult novels and talk about the importance of incorporating titles like these into your classroom.

Putting Books to Work

Putting Books to Work takes the traditional author panel and reimagines it as a hands-on workshop. You'll dive deeply into classroom-friendly titles with the acclaimed authors who wrote them, create title-focused materials with fellow attendees, and leave with practical, teacher-generated ideas for incorporating those books into your curriculum.
