Jacob’s World: Gender Diversity on the Page
January 27, 1-3pm ET
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.
Following the book talk, from 2-3pm there will be a social gathering for anyone who utilizes our support groups to meet in person, share, network, and be together.
