Hillary Saxton is a
children's librarian at the Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public
Library, and the creator of the event series "Stand Up!
Storytime for Social Justice." She was originally scheduled to
participate in the "Social
Justice and Jewish Children's Books" panel at the Association
of Jewish Libraries conference, featured on The Book of Life in
August 2018. She was sick and couldn't make it, so I caught up with
her later by Skype.
Find the titles used in the 2017-18 Stand Up storytimes at the Cambridge Public Library's collection of booklists here. And please share your own favorite social justice titles in the comments here at The Book of Life.
Speaking of social justice, check out the Association of Jewish Libraries' series of "Love Your Neighbor" booklists, created to provide all children and their families with a greater understanding of the Jewish religion and its people.
