What does equitable and accurate representation look like in children’s literature? How can we tell if we’re getting it right? What are some of the pitfalls and challenges?

 

TOV parents reading

 

We invite the Tapestry of Voices community to share great examples of published books that take good care with the representation of ALL children — books that make you feel seen and heard, books that make you think about others in new ways. Bring a book that was such a good window, mirror, or sliding glass door that it gave you shivers as you read. We’ll discuss what works for representation in children’s literature, and where we as authors and illustrators see room for improvement.

Event co-hosted by Michelle Quraishi and Natasha Tripplett

FREE EVENT! All children’s book writers and illustrators from all regions are welcome. Librarians, classroom teachers, and readers of all ages also welcome!
