ILA/USBBY Webinar, "Using Literature to Promote Understanding, Empathy, and Global Citizenship," May 9
Literature has the power to open minds to new worlds, new understandings, and new possibilities. This free International Literacy Association Webinar, held in partnership with the United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY), explores ways to leverage high-quality, global literature for powerful learning opportunities.
Mónica Montañés (author of Different), Mari Kanstad Johnsen (illustrator of Bedtime for Bo), Paloma Valdivia (illustrator of Book of Questions), and Sara Lissa Paulson (translator of Book of Questions), whose books were named to USBBY’s 2023 Outstanding International Books List, will be on hand to discuss their work and how engaging young readers in world literature can help them become active global citizens.
