Join Latinx scholar Dr. Laura Jiménez and Vermont State Librarian Jason Broughton on Zoom as they examine ways to lead effective discussions centered on diversity and antiracism.

They’ll use our Vermont Reads 2020 choice, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, as a catalyst for the conversation. The free event is co-sponsored by the Vermont Library Association. Space is limited, so please sign up soon!
