LS Books Page
Sometimes, the most important topics can also be the most difficult. A book and a talk can be just the thing to get curious young minds thinking, asking, engaging, identifying, understanding. We invite you to explore these resources, books, and conversation starters meant to support family discussions about identity, diversity, and social justice. We’ll post a new book, along with resources and talking points every month, and of course the archive remains. All featured books are available in GA’s LS library.
