If you’re coming to ALA, I hope you have this panel on your schedule.
Campaigns to increase diversity in children’s publishing have gained support, but debates continue to emerge over the “how” of this diversity—especially when it comes to fraught topics like slavery, racism, gender identity and sexual orientation. How does responsible engagement with these and other contentious topics impact the work of writing, reading, selecting, and teaching diverse books for children and teens? This panel will highlight insights from authors and publishers while exploring practices for advancing the conversation about diversity.

That’s going to be a wonderful panel! I wish I could be there, and I hope someone takes notes. (I know you’ll be busy!)
There *are* grandmothers who are down to talk this talk! Mine was. 🙂 This will be a fabulous conversation.
