Kelly, anne & Eduardo | Virtual Author Visit
RECORDED LIVE: May 31, 2022
Celebrate National Accessibility Week with a virtual visit with the authors and illustrator of We Move Together. Kelly, Anne, and Eduardo read to us from their book and lead us in a discussion about the importance of accessibility and inclusion.
About the Book
A bold and colorful exploration of all the ways that people navigate through the spaces around them and a celebration of the relationships we build along the way. We Move Together follows a mixed-ability group of kids as they creatively negotiate everyday barriers and find joy and connection in disability culture and community. A perfect tool for families, schools, and libraries to facilitate conversations about disability, accessibility, social justice and community building.
