Reading plays such a huge role in developing critical thinking skills and empathy. The books children - maybe your children - read may be ensuring exposure to diversity for growth and development or they may be presenting harmful representations. What do they see? What do YOU see?
Join Dr. Laura Nicosia, Associate Professor at Montclair State University, for a discussion exploring aspects of social justice and representation through a variety of carefully chosen texts.
Dr. Nicosia teaches American/YA Literature and methods of teaching the humanities using technologies. An author of numerous books and articles, Dr. Nicosia always encourages an examination of texts that provoke conversations.
This program is funded by the New Jersey Council of the Humanities.
Wednesday, April 3rd @ 6:30 PM
Registration is requested.
