This program weaves together the perspective of scholars, authors, and practitioners in examining how “young people learn best when that learning is connected to their passions, desires, and interests.” Professors Sylvia Vardell and Antero Garcia, librarian Marianne Follis, and authors Janet Wong, Margarita Engle, and Lesléa Newman, will discuss how diversity is the key—in literature, media, and programming and in embracing and exploring questions of cultural and sexual identity.
