Feedback form is now closed.
All six high school librarians will book talk books that cover every imaginable diversity group on our campuses. The goal is to help our fellow educators have great recommendations at their fingertips so that we can all reach more learners with more titles that touch their lives, and help our learners through whatever puts them outside the mainstream. We will provide take-away lists of YA books that meet the needs of these special populations, in addition to those we book-talk throughout the session.
