Here we share conversations with librarians, educators, and readers about the children's books that can be bridges across our cultural divides… the books that can open minds and the books that can be the lifeline a child needs to remember they're not alone. The hosts are Ann Braden and Saadia Faruqi. Ann is a middle grade author, a community organizer, a former middle school teacher and a mother of two. Saadia is a Pakistani American author, an interfaith activist, cultural sensitivity trainer, and a mother of two.

Glad I Subscribed!

Having only listened to one episode (#3) I can assure you I’m glad I subscribed. I’m currently voraciously consuming verse novels and poetry, and I like to think I’m well-read in middle grade work. But I found myself trying to jot down titles while driving! The second part, during which Ann interviews a nationally recognized student poet, was wonderful as well! I too was struck by the poem she shared.
Looking forward to listening to back and future episodes. Thank you!
