From Collection to Action: A One-Day ‘Read Woke’ Mini Course with Cicely Lewis
November 9 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am
SLJ’s School Librarian of the Year (2020) Cicely Lewis founded Read Woke, a movement and call to action to give voice to the disenfranchised in education and literacy. Read Woke Books seek to challenge social norms, give voice to the silenced, provide information about groups that have been disenfranchised, disrupt the status quo, and share perspectives from underrepresented or oppressed groups.
In this one-day mini-course, Cicely and her colleagues will show you how to bring diverse voices to your library collection and programming. You’ll learn how other librarians have implemented Read Woke Books at their library and how you can do the same.
