How We See Ourselves in What We Read,

The Livingston Public Library is partnering with The New Jersey Council for the Humanities to host the Public Scholars Project program, How We See Ourselves in What We Read, on Tuesday February 12th, 2019 at 7pm at the Livingston Public Library.

Do children, maybe your children or your students, see themselves in the books they’re reading? What do you see in those books? What they’re reading may be representative, but then again, it may not be. It’s important to identify the harmful representations overall and ensure exposure to diversity for growth and development. Reading plays such a huge role in developing critical thinking skills and empathy. In this session, a guided discussion will explore aspects of social justice and representation through a look at a variety of carefully chosen texts.

This program has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the NEH or NJCH.

The program is free and open to all.
