Amina’s Song: Raising Your Voice for New American Literature & Students: Webinar for Educators and Librarians

Educators and librarians celebrated the release of of the Pakistani American middle grade novel Amina’s Song (the follow-up to the award-winning Amina’s Voice ) with author Hena Khan in March 2021.

Co-hosts I’m Your Neighbor Books, DiversifiED, and Print: A Bookstore were proud to host the event that explored the connected novels and the role of New Arrival and New American fiction in our schools and libraries.

After a reading and interview with Hena Khan, Louise El Yaafouri of Diversifi-ED, a school Emergent Lingual & Cultural Competency Consultant, shared strategies for fully including Muslim literature in the classroom. Following, Kirsten Cappy and Pious Ali of I’m Your Neighbor Books shared ways your bookshelves and read aloud’s can reflect the diversity that the last 50 years of immigration have created.

Thanks to a donation from the family of educator Kimberley Gorelik Moran, I’m Your Neighbor Books gave away 50 individual copies of Amina’s Song (with a signed bookplates) to those who registered early.
