Multicultural literature for children has blossomed in the twenty-first century, yet books about many large groups of ethnic Americans still remain underrepresented. This lecture by Dr. Sheila Most of Eastern Michigan University will discuss the beginnings of multicultural books for children, influences on their development, awards for multicultural children's books, the role of publishers, important issues in multicultural children's books, and continuing needs for the future. This event is held in conjunction with the exhibit 'The Future Of Our Past: The Evolution Of Multicultural Children's Literature,' on display in the Downtown Library lower lever glass cases through November 29.
