Using book clubs to promote diversity and inclusion in your community through literature can enhance your library’s outreach. Join Penguin Random House Library Marketing and prominent librarians, Allison Escoto of The Center for Fiction and Sharon Fason of Chicago Public Library, for a discussion on diversity in programming. Then top off the session by hearing from an exciting panel of four authors, whose books are excellent examples of literature that will inspire dialogue and raise awareness.
Upon completion, participants will have ideas to create book clubs which both entertain and inspire their communities to embrace diversity in their own communities.
Through this program, participants will have actionable ideas, suggestions and books to create engaging book club conversations which will bring broader understanding to honor diverse experiences.
Upon completion, the participants will have immediate applicable skills to organize, lead and affect change in their communities through introducing and honoring diverse voices and experiences.
