Diverse Voices in Literature Seminar
Featuring Jacqueline Woodson
Join us to discuss and explore how diverse literature can create more inclusive environments and expand conversations about issues facing today’s youth.
Jacqueline Woodson is an award winning author of both children's and adolescent literature. She writes stories that help readers (ages 5 through adulthood) consider social issues, respect and empathy toward others and a renewed sense of humanity.
If you can't make it to the afternoon discussion, there will also be a presentation at 5:40-7:40 p.m. in the Morrison Gallery. Her evening talk will explore the power that diverse literature has to uplift, heal, and create positive change in individuals.
Please visit the Jacqueline Woodson webpage for more information about her books.
*The event is FREE and is funded by the Student Activity Fee Fund and Diversity and Educational Equity committee, with additional support from the college's Office of the Chancellor and Library.
Light refreshments will be available at both events.
