Please join the Jeanne Chall Reading Lab (JCRL) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in celebrating Black History Month by participating in NCTE’s National African American Read-In. The National African American Read-in is a groundbreaking effort to encourage communities to read together, centering African American books and authors.
Come browse the JCRL’s collection of African American authors and illustrators during the week of 2/22 (Tuesday-Friday); the JCRL will be open daily from 11-6. Attendees will be entered into a raffle to win one of the 2022 Coretta Scott King Award Winners (“Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre”, “Me (Moth),” & “The Me I Choose to Be”). We look forward to seeing you there!
