Diverse Books 2022

Finding Diverse Books for Kids & Teens 2022

Welcome! The information on this page was created by Barratt Miller and Sabrina Tusing for the Oregon City School District Equity Conference held on February 4, 2022. While it was designed to be used by K through 12 educators, this information will also be helpful to anyone who's trying to find diverse books for and about kids and teens.
