Dear AISLE Colleagues,
The 2020 Latinx Kidlit Book Festival was officially held last Friday, December 4th and Saturday, December 5th: https://www.latinxkidlitbookfestival.com

On my blog today, I shared my take-aways from the four sessions I’ve attended so far: https://tinyurl.com/sllblog120720

All of the #LKBF2020 video sessions are available on YouTube and will continue to be available indefinitely: https://www.youtube.com/c/LatinxKidLitBookFestival/videos

Thank you to the #LKBF2020 sponsors for supporting these authors and illustrators. Let’s do our best as librarians to get these books into the hands of all young people and particularly those whose life experiences appear less often in children’s and young adult literature.

It’s a matter of equity and social justice.

If you attended/attend the Festival, please share your take-aways on my blog or here.

Thank you.
