Once a month, the World Area Book Awards (Américas Award, Africana Book Award, Freeman Book Award, Middle East Book Award, and the South Asia Book Award) sponsor a 60 minute webinar on a book recognized by one of the awards. Each webinar features a presentation by an award-winning author with discussion on how to incorporate multicultural literature into the classroom.
The books are appropriate for students in grades K-12. Please read along with us this spring as we explore the world through these award-winning books. We encourage all readers to join in on the conversations each month and connect directly with the author.
The Américas Book Award webinar will be held May 11, 2020 (Auntie Luce's Talking Paintings by Francie Latour) from 7-8 PM EST.
