Local Voices, Bilingual Books: Panel of local bilingual children’s and young adult book authors

Day 1, Session 2 - July 25, 2:30-3:30pm

What knowledge is overlooked, undervalued, and what experiences do we miss out on when we don’t listen to local voices? Nadie es profeta en su propia tierra, but they are experts! In this session a group of local bilingual children’s and young adult book authors will share their experiences writing and publishing books and how they use them to build biliteracy and bilingual identities in our community.
