#WeNeedDiverseBooks

June 5th, 2014

in Pickering Educational Resources Library

Celebrate Diversity!Diversity (and lack thereof) in kids’ literature has been a hot topic, especially in the last few months. A group of 22 authors and publishers has launched a #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign, urging the public to raise their voices in support of diversity in the publishing industry.

Here at the Pickering Educational Resources Library, we are celebrating literature that educates us about ethnic, linguistic, family, gender, individual, and cultural differences. For the month of June, our themed display features a selection of diverse books and authors that we do have on our shelves. Stop by to check them out!
