Diversity in Context: Stretching the Idea of Building Diverse Collections

Wednesday, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Free

Join Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School, on October 16 for her webinar, “Diversity in Context: Stretching the Idea of Building Diverse Collections.”

About

For this webinar, Michelle Luhtala invites you for a lively discussion on building diverse literary collections in honor of Teen Read Week 2019. As young readers often relate to characters who share some of their own characteristics, it’s important to build collections that celebrate not only diverse characters but also a diverse range of experiences. In addition, this webinar will discuss how to encourage young readers to empathize with characters who may seem unfamiliar to them.

Time for questions will be provided.
