Upcoming Professional Development Topics at ACL Meetings (second Friday of each month)
May 12, 2023: Please join us for our professional development session with Dr. Debbie Reese, founder of American Indians in Children’s Literature. She will provide a brief overview of American Indians and the history of Native representation in children’s literature, as well as share information about the incredible books being published by Native creators today. If there is a book you are considering deselecting, have it handy! If time permits, we can discuss the book.
