Spring 2017 Continuing Ed Online Course: Exploring South Asia through Children’s and YA Literature

This course examines recently published books that reflect stories, characters, and cultures from South Asia for grades pre K through high school. Due to the growing number of books published on this unique region; and the growing number of patrons in our libraries and schools seeking materials that reflect their heritage, this course will offer tools to plan specialized programing and collection development to fulfill this need.

Instructors: Svetha Hetzler is the director of the Sun Prairie (WI) Public Library and has served as the chair of the South Asia Book Award (SABA) committee. Rachel Weiss is the student services coordinator at the UW-Madison Asian Languages and Culture department and the founder of SABA. The course begins February 27 and ends on March 24, 2017.
