ACL Meeting Friday, October 11, 2019: Just a quick reminder for our Bay Area members! Please join us for our ACL Meeting on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019, from 9am–1pm at the Oakland Main Library. We will have our usual Book Reviewing and a report from the Distinguished Books committee. We will also have a special Professional Development session:
Food Literacy: Building Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Through Stories About Food
Philip Lee and June Jo Lee co-founded READERS to EATERS to promote food literacy by publishing stories about our diverse food cultures. To them food literacy means developing understanding on what and how we eat, and also promoting cultural literacy through something people of all cultures share everyday: Food! They have partnered with education and food organizations to connect book access and food access and will share stories on how they all work together to create a better community through food. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the company, which relocated from the Seattle area to San Francisco in 2018. More at www.readerstoeaters.com/
