Spring 2024 Series: Reading and Writing the “Other”: Diversity and Inclusion in Our Worlds

Curated by writer and editor Nisi Shawl, the three events in this series underscore the importance of stories created for everyone.  Let’s look at how to make sure that what’s written about historically marginalized characters rings true, and let’s share our love of diverse, inclusive literature with brand new readers.
