Indies UNITE! is a grassroots movement started by a few indie bookstores that came together to collaborate and bring meaningful virtual events and host discussions in our communities. The five indie bookstores that are currently participating in this first virtual event are:
Second Star to the Right Bookstore, Denver, CO
Politics & Prose, Washington, DC
Little Shop of Stories, Decatur, GA
Blue Manatee Literacy Project, Cincinnati, OH and
Monkey See, Monkey Do…Children’s Bookstore, Buffalo, NY
We are proud to present the first in an anti-racist panel series featuring authors, illustrators, librarians and industry professionals focused on anti-racism conversations.
Join us for this first panel, featuring Valerie Bolling, Sharon Draper, Cicely Lewis and Cheryl + Wade Hudson! We will discuss teaching anti-racism in the classroom, how to create a safe space for students of color and how to tackle talking about anti-racism with students.
