IUP Libraries will hold a virtual Schafer Speaker
Series Event on Thursday, March 25, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. titled “The Need
for Representation in Children’s Literature.”
The event will be presented by
Jeremy McCool, communications media doctoral student, and Anthony
McBride, associate professor at Western Illinois University School of Law
Enforcement and Justice Administration.
McCool and McBride are co-authors of Princess
and the Power of Melanin, a children’s book meant to uplift young
girls and combat colorism. They are currently working on the next book in
the princess series, The Adventures of Darrius: The Hall Monitor. Jeremy
and Anthony will discuss their work on both books as well as the importance of
books like these for children of color.
The event will be held via Zoom. Preregistration is required. We hope to see you there!
