Event Description
Join us for the 6th Annual Children’s Literature Conference and Horace Mann Upstanders Award, presented by the Education Department at Antioch University Los Angeles. Established in 2008, the Horace Mann Upstanders Book Award honors books in which the main character recognizes injustice and acts in a way to right the wrong. This award honors new children’s literature that best exemplifies the ideals of social action and in turn encourages young readers to become agents of change themselves.

The day will include conference breakout sessions and appearances by Upstander Awardees:
-Unspoken by Henry Cole, Horace Mann Upstanders Book Award
-Tomie dePaola, Lifetime Upstander Award
-Luis J. Rodriguez, Community Upstander Achievement Award
-Innosanto Nagara, Upstander New Talent Award

Attendees are requested to bring a donation of a book.
