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
