Among the many, many incredible educators, librarians, literacy experts, passionate writers, inspiring illustrators (the list goes on) whom we at the CTTCB are lucky enough to call colleague and friend is Edi Campbell.
Edi’s many resonant roles include librarian, educator and social justice advocate. She has lent her expertise, passion and voice to our previous institute “Indivisible 10 Years Later: Conversations in Social Justice”, and continues to be someone we turn to for truth, and inspiration.
In Edi’s most recent blog post she celebrates the winners of the recent ALA Youth Media Awards. But more than this, she celebrates all the creators, regardless of awards won, who pour their imaginations and hearts into the words that guide our youth towards a more inclusive future.
We encourage you to take a moment to follow Edi as she introduces the most recent African/African American, Asian American and Latinx award winners. But don’t stop at this one blogpost! Edi’s blog contains a wealth of teaching resources, book lists, and author suggestions.
Our congratulations to all of this year’s winners, and our deepest thanks and admiration to Edi.
