Library Service for Children in Migrant Detention Centers

So I have just come back from four weeks touring the National Parks of America. Along the way I watched my fair share of News coverage on the deaths happening along the border. The picture of the father and his daughter still makes me tear up.

I’m not proud to say that Australia’s record of detaining Children is any better. But what gave me heart was listening to the passionate Americans I met along the way who were horrified by what was going on. Who were going to be out there protesting and challenging what was happening.

This article on the provision of Library services to Children in Detention Centres will inspire you. Americans who are standing up and helping out, give me hope that change can happen.

Crazy quilts are unique and innovative quilts created from scraps of material. They're crafted from odd pieces that don't always match or fit together without the work of an artist. My hope is for a world that values this unique artwork. I blog to make IPOC authors and their works more accessible, to make all the pieces fit together.
