Books that showcase a variety of multiethnic communities, are populated with diverse characters, and explore our shared humanity, continue to be an increasingly important issue in the global world in which we live. Librarians, educators, and publishers have long been at the forefront of addressing that need. From an anthology of stories by Native American authors to nonfiction that challenges stereotypes, the backlist and new titles shared by Annick Press and Capstone Publishing during this webcast will be of special interest for your readers.

Join SLJ reviews senior editor Shelley Diaz as she moderates a free one-hour webcast featuring presentations on children’s and teen books that celebrate diversity.
