Dealing with difficult texts and promoting anti-racism

This is the second of a series of free Diverse Libraries webinars offered through a partnership between Penguin Random House, Libraries Connected and the National Literacy Trust.

They have been designed to help you ensure that your library collection and the reading experience you offer is as diverse and inclusive as possible.

Visit our Diverse Libraries page to find out about the full series of three webinars and the different topics each will address. Each can be booked as a standalone event, but we'd encourage you to join all three where possible

Who should attend?

Webinars are open to all library staff or teachers based in primary or secondary schools, public or community libraries across the UK.

The session will:

  • Support teachers and library staff to further understand the different ways they can support readers when accessing problematic texts from their collections
  • Explore a range of methods to promote anti-racism through a study of literature
  • Initiate discussion about the role that schools and libraries can play in prompting meaningful conversations about race and prejudice
  • Participants will be invited to share their own experiences and expertise throughout the session.
