The UW Tacoma Library and the Center for Equity and Inclusion are delighted to announce that we are bringing another Real Lit[erature] Author Talk to our campus! Last quarter we skyped with Angie Thomas. This quarter, all are welcome for a thirty minute Q&A conversation with Dashka Slater, author of The 57 Bus. The book — based on a true story — has won several awards already, including the Stonewall Book Award!

Date: Wednesday, 3/13/19

Time: 12:30-1:00

Location: SNO 136

Please join us!  As we’ve discussed the book this quarter, our conversations have covered hate crime, gender identity, incarceration, and restorative justice, to name a few. The conversation promises to be meaningful and relevant as we grapple with issues surrounding social justice.
