WHAT IS THE RELEVANCE OF HANUKKAH?
While Hanukkah isn’t a major Jewish holiday, it carries certain themes that feel more resonant than ever this year: resistance, resilience and community. These are the exact reasons why I am passionate about the power of picture books. I hope spending time in conversation with these artists will help spread more of their magic during a time when it is sorely needed.
HOW TO ENGAGE?
Swipe to learn more about these renowned creators and the craft topics for each discussion. Join us in real time on IG Live OR watch later— all talks will be recorded and posted. Educators can also download the videos and use them as mini-lessons with students!
I hope you will consider joining and sharing with others who may get something out of it, too! I’m still pinching myself that I get to engage in these conversations with people I so deeply admire. I’ll work hard to keep my jaw off the floor and my squeals to a minimum.
