    Not Just for Kids: How Children's Literature Inspires Bold Conversations

    In this talk, University of Washington lecturer Anu Taranath will showcase children’s books from around the world as well as diverse communities in the US, inviting audiences to take a closer look at kids’ books, and suggests we adults might also learn some new lessons about how to navigate our complicated world. Within these seemingly simple stories are important messages about how we think about our differences, and importantly, how we might rethink our similarities.
