What’s happening in the afternoon on Monday, June 26? We’re so glad you asked! That’s the day Newbery Award-winning author Linda Sue Park; author, co-founder, and CEO of We Need Diverse Books Ellen Oh; and Dr. Ling Hwey Jeng, professor and director, School of Library and Information Studies at Texas Woman’s University will be gathered in one place for a conversation about the many forms leadership takes in children’s services, kidlit, and beyond. This amazing discussion is one element of current ALSC President Amy Koester’s ALSC President’s Program “Leading with Your Hands and Your Heart: A Conversation about Leading from Wherever You Are” at ALA Annual 2023 in Chicago. We hope you will join us for this interactive program exploring ways to identify and activate leadership skills and areas of potential at all levels of library work.

ALSC Charlemae Rollins President’s Program

As the Annual Conference draws near, I invite you to the 2021 ALSC Charlemae Rollins President’s Program. This year, we are doing things a little differently as we get creative with connecting and learning together. Since we are still not able to be together in person, we are having two virtual events to celebrate and discuss the power of graphic novels. The first event is an ALSC-members-only webinar on June 1, 2021, at 1:00pm EDT, featuring panelists Angela Ocana, Deimosa Webber-Bey, and Amie Wright.
