With 65 million people displaced by war, violence, and economic uncertainty, migration is one of the central issues of our time. Join us to read new, powerful stories about the global journeys of young people and adults that humanize the phenomenon of migration. Book selections will take us from Afghanistan to Italy (In the Sea There are Crocodiles), Africa and the Middle East to the U.S. (Outcasts United), and Latin America to the U.S. (The Book of Unknown Americans).  Facilitated by a veteran English teacher and global educator, this three-session series is open to all educators who want to talk about global and multicultural books for middle, high school and adult readers. Location chosen with special consideration for teachers and school librarians from the South Shore.

Open to all K-12 educators.
