I’ve been following the discussions about the representations of slavery in children’s literature all day and have found much to think about and much I’d like to discuss with people who have thought about the issues of diversity in children’s lit for a lot longer than I have. So I’m very happy to know that there is an opportunity to engage this important conversation here in Portland. It’s free and sponsored by Portland State University. The panel discussion will be next week January 28th at 7:30 at University Pointe in room 102. I hope to see you there.
