Jacob’s World: Gender Diversity on the Page

January 27 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

There’s a revolution happening in society’s understanding of gender. Sarah & Ian Hoffman found themselves in the middle of it, first as parents and then as authors. Their award-winning books, Jacob’s New Dress, Jacob’s Room To Choose, and Jacob’s School Play: Starring He, She, and They, were written to build a culture that celebrates gender diversity. Now the books are banned in over 20 states.

Sarah & Ian will talk about how the books came to be, evolving notions of gender, and what it’s like to have your books pulled from classroom shelves.

Register today.
