Mary Bernson, East Asia Resource Center
Online: Starts Monday, January 26 and ends Sunday, March 15, 2015

Open to intermediate and middle school classroom teachers, media specialists, and art teachers. Prize-winning children’s author-artists Allen Say and Ed Young spent their childhoods in wartime Asia. Their experiences became the raw material for long careers chronicling Japanese (Allen Say) and Chinese (Ed Young) culture for young readers. This online book group offers a guided discussion of the 2011 memoirs by Say and Young. The memoirs offer a rich resource for exploring Japanese and Chinese histories, cultures, and values while examining print and visual material.  Registration opens December 1, 2014 and closes January 19 or when filled.
