Support for those working for Racial Justice in Children's Literacy and Education

In lieu of a registration fee, the Guild is offering the option to make a small donation to one organization, chosen monthly by the Program Committee, that supports black lives and racial justice initiatives in children's literacy and education. Donations are optional and will be given by Members and Friends of the Children's Book Guild of Washington, DC.


There is an option to donate after registering.
