Online panel: Shifting the Narrative: A Conversation on Race & Identity in Children’s Books
Thursday, October 28, 3:00 p.m.
Watch live or later on YouTube: https://bit.ly/ShiftingNarrativePanel
Free. Open to the public. Hosted by University of Oregon Libraries and Eugene Public Library.

Join us for a conversation about how race and identity have been represented in children's books in the past, how and why authors and illustrators are working to change that in the present, and panelists' hopes for the future of children's literature. Panelists will address complex questions including who can tell whose story, how do we deal with our racist past, and how we can begin to bring fresh narratives and perspectives to the field.

Participants include moderator Elizabeth Wheeler, University of Oregon Associate Professor of English; Kimberly Johnson, University of Oregon Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Young Adult author; Debbie Reese (Nambé Pueblo), founder, American Indians in Children’s Literature; and Chenoa (Lummi and S’Klallam) and Keith (Lummi) Egawa, authors and illustrators of children’s books.

This free event is open to the public and co-hosted by University of Oregon Libraries and Eugene Public Library with sponsorship by the Oregon Humanities Center and the National Historical Publications Records Commission.
