Using Sylvia and Marsha Start a Revolution! to talk about trans history: a digital workshop

Wondering how to talk to your children about transgender history, gender, police, and activism? Last year, Teshika Silver and I gave a workshop on just that topic to the Family Equality Council. We talked about our approach to making transgender history accessible to young readers, the art of Sylvia and Marsha Start a Revolution!, and marginalized people in the publishing industry. You can enjoy the workshop here. It was a pleasure to connect with the Family Equality Council.

I would love to give a presentation like this to your group! I am available for class and library visits, workshops, read-alouds, and virtual book parties. As a teacher and historian, I am able to adapt my presentation for any age-level and time frame. Contact me via email or find me on the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Speakers Bureau.
