How do you get young readers interested in history? Three authors talk about creating compelling stories from a variety of cultures and perspectives. Places real and imagined, vivid characters, and beautiful writing bring stories to life, sparking imagination and curiosity.

Authors Shauntay Grant, Anne C. Kelly, and Alan Syliboy will discuss how they draw on historical events, fiction, and mythology to engage children where they are – and to show them how the past is not just tales told or records in an archive, but alive and vibrant in the world where they live.
