Watch the Webinar: LGBTQ+ Children’s Books: A Conversation with Authors

Sep 30, 2019 | Essential Conversations

Our friends at Lee & Low Books presented a webinar this summer called “LGBTQ+ Children’s Books: A Conversation with Authors.” Since this aligns with our Essential Conversations series we asked Lee & Low if we could share the webinar recording with you. Watch it here:

These three titles were showcased in the webinar by authors Kyle Lukoff, Lesléa Newman, and Maya Christina Gonzalez:

When Aidan Became a Brother by Kyle Lukoff, illustrated by Kaylani Juanita
Sparkle Boy by Lesléa Newman, illustrated by Maria Mola
Call Me Tree/Llámame Árbol written and illustrated by Maya Christina Gonzalez

Lee & Low also provided an LGBTQ+ Book and Resource List for more information and resources about the topics discussed as well as links to relevant websites.

Visiting Our Campus
