Not Just for Kids: How kids and adults can use children’s books from around the globe to navigate our complicated world

Sunday, October 28, 2018

AAUW Seattle and AAUW Edmonds SnoKing cordially invite you to a presentation on children’s literature by Dr. Ana Taranath of the Washington Humanities Speakers Bureau.

In this talk, Dr. Taranath will showcase children’s books from around the world, as well as diverse communities in the United States.

She will invite audiences to take a closer look at children’s books and suggest ways we adults might also learn some new lessons about how to navigate our complicated world.

Within these seemingly simple stories are important messages about how we think about our differences, and importantly, how we might rethink our similarities.

Dr. Taranath is interested in creating a program around children’s literature that asks, “Who has been published? Who is not being published? What do you think that means? Can books help us get along better, and if we think so, how? If not, what do we do?”

Saturday, November 10, 2018. Program at 10:30am.
Third Place Commons, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park

All are welcome. No charge. Free Parking.
