Hello! I'm excited to attend my first SXSW EDU with my fellow co-founders of Novela, a project we started to help educators find culturally responsive literature for their classroom libraries. Inspired by movements like #WeNeedDiverseBooks and #RepresentationMatters, we hope to help create a world where all students can see their backgrounds and lived experiences reflected in their school's curriculum. To learn more, please visit our website at novelasearch.com or attend our Campfire session:

Date: Monday 03/04/2019
Time: 5-6PM
Venue: Hilton Austin Downtown
Room: Room 410

Feel free to reach out! We'd love to meet you.
