CSK Programs in 2019

Fifty States Celebrating the 50th Anniversary (The 50-50 Initiative)

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards, the CSK Program Committee is challenging librarians, educators, and all lovers of children’s literature across the nation to hold one or more programs, classes, presentations, speeches, etc., highlighting the committee, award-winning books, authors, or illustrators in each of the 50 states. You are encouraged to use these resources, programs, and activities as a base to build upon.

If you accept this challenge, please email Alan Bailey, CSK Chair, and cc diversity@ala.org so your state will be recognized for participating in the 50-50 Initiative.
