New Award-Winning Children’s Literature on Africa and the Middle East

Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 10:00am to 3:00pm Howard University, room t.b.d.

This is the third annual collaboration on a workshop for children’s and youth literature between the Center for African Studies and the School of Education at Howard University and the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University. This year we are featuring books on the geographic intersections between the Middle East and Africa. The workshop will include a talk by an author and illustrator, as well as activities that offer participants to explore the books  and strategize ways to use them in the classroom, as well as helping to select from the free books for their classroom libraries.

Lunch will be provided.  Registration link forthcoming soon!

This workshop is made possible by Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and a Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education, which is funding a National Resource Center on the Middle East at Georgetown.
