SOLD OUT! A Morning Celebrating Diversity in Literature with Bao Phi
January 31 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Capstone Publishing, along with Custom Education Solutions, is hosting a morning celebrating diversity in children’s literature. Bao Phi will join us to present his highly acclaimed book, A Different Pond. Receiving numerous honors including Best Multicultural Children’s Books of 2017 by The Center for the Study of Multicultural Children’s Literature and nominations for Best Books 2017 from both Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, this beautiful book delivers a powerful, honest look in to the relationship between father and son, while navigating cultures, old and new.
Capstone will give a behind-the-scenes look at how a publishing company approaches the creation of culturally relevant literature that provides mirrors and windows for students, as well as provide a sneak-peek at new characters and series currently in development.
Kelly Romo will offer strategies on incorporating diversity in to your balanced literacy resources, including mentor texts, guided reading and classroom libraries.
