Join the Teacher Development & Resources Library, Sperling Kronberg Mack Las Vegas Holocaust Resource Center, and the Gayle A. Zeiter Literacy Development Center on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. for this virtual conversation with a panel of noted authors of Holocaust literature for children and young adults. In a time when antisemitism and all forms of bigotry are on the rise, these authors address these issues through the lens of Holocaust literature. The conference will provide a one hour panel followed by smaller breakout sessions with each author to provide attendees with the opportunity to meet on a more personal level with the authors they choose.
