Hi everyone,

As part of the work of the CALA/YALSA Taskforce, we’re hosting a series of webinars featuring authors from the Stories Beyond Borders: A Chinese American and Diasporic Reading List. You can view our printable PDF now housed in the CALA repository (CALASYS): 

The first webinar Middle Grade Storytellers will take place on May 15th at 10am CDT / 11am EDT and features middle grade authors Karina Yan Glaser (A Duet for Home), Lisa Yee (Maizy Chen’s Last Chance), and Wendy Wan-Long Shang (The Secret Battle of Evan Pao) in conversation with Taskforce member Amy Chow. Ray Pun will make opening remarks.
