There will be a forum on Monday and Wednesday, August 17th and 19th, a 2 PM at the Woodhaven Library (85-41 Forest Parkway) to discuss the lack of diversity in children's books. Esther Lin, who will be leading these discussions, will be joining us tonight on Radio Free Woodhaven a 10 PM - click here to listen. Call in to speak with the host (646) 378-1612.
The group plans to petition publishers for more children's books featuring more diverse characters that reflect the population of Woodhaven, and Queens in general. This event is supported by the Queens Council on the Arts.
