The past is prologue. But whose past and told in whose voice? How do you determine truth? What’s fact or fake, balanced or biased, narrow-minded or inclusive, detached or empathic? Drawing on personal experience, award-winning authors discuss the complex, often controversial process of unpacking and presenting history in fiction and nonfiction. Drawing on work in school and public libraries, they offer librarians tested, easy-to-replicate ideas to excite kids about their connection to history and propel them to write untold stories. This program focuses on how to nurture critical thinking skills, vital in these turbulent times.
