CSULB will hold its seventh annual Summer Children's Literature Institute on Saturday, Aug. 6, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the fifth floor of the University Library. Registration for the event is $55.
The all-day event features award-winning children's authors and illustrators who share their work and ideas with participants, providing a unique and creative professional development experience for teachers to improve their ability to integrate children's literature into the classroom.
Among this year's presenters are Joe Cepeda, best-selling illustrator of The Journey of Oliver K. Woodman, as well as Nappy Hair and The Old Man and His Door, written by Gary Soto. Laura Hillman, who survived the Holocaust as a member of Schindler's list, is the author of I Will Plant You a Lilac Tree. An educator living in Southern California, she often speaks on her experiences in high schools and colleges. Cynthia Kadohata is a Japanese-American writer known for writing coming of age stories about Asian-American women, including the 2005 Newbery Award winner Kira-Kira. Also presenting will be Erin Gruwell, noted teacher of the teenagers who wrote The Freedom Writers Diary, which is currently being made into a movie.
