Black Literature Matters: A Book Talk

Join children's literature experts Dr. Sara Hines (Eight Cousins Books) and Ms. Stephanie Seales (Falmouth Public Library/Kirkus Reviews) for a lively discussion of quality books for children and teens. Promoting books by authors from marginalized communities has never been more crucial and books are a excellent tool for continuing the dialogue about race in our country. Dr. Hines & Ms. Seales are passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in children's literature, and will highlight books featuring Black protagonists that are written by #ownvoices authors.

Both Ms. Seales and Dr. Hines hold masters degrees in children's literature. Combined they have over three decade's worth of experience working with children's books and are excited to share their extensive knowledge of diverse children's books with the Falmouth community. Come out and learn about wonderful titles you can share with the children and teens in your life (and read yourself!). This free event will be held Saturday, March 4th at 3pm at the Falmouth Public Library, 300 Main Street, in the Bay Room, and is co-sponsored by No Place for Hate Falmouth, Eight Cousins Bookstore, and the Falmouth Public Library.
