Migrar en Palabras: Reading as an instrument of integration and cross cultural understanding.

Zuza Bohley, Americas Latino Eco Festival

Americas for Conservation + the Arts has developed a list of recommendations for Children’s and Youth literature called Migrar en Palabras (Migration in Words) that focus on environmental stewardship, Latin American culture and traditions, migration/immigration and cross-cultural education; the list includes Spanish, English and bilingual titles. We will present an updated list of recommendations and ask participants to share their own favorite YA lit on these important topics, to be included in the next version of Migrar. You’ll be able to browse a selection of books from the list, connect with other librarians and educators, and engage in a collaborative project of sharing and collecting ideas for community engagement.
