Diverse Books 2024

Welcome! The information on this page was created by Barratt Miller for the Oregon City School District Equity Conference held on February 9, 2024. While it was designed to be used by K-8 educators, this information will also be helpful to anyone who’s trying to find diverse books for and about kids and teens.
