Mirrors and Windows: Diversity in Children’s Literature @ Delaware Art Museum
Apr 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Dr. Tonya Leslie will host a workshop at the Delaware Art Museum, which will discuss and explore diversity in children’s literature. She will discuss the importance of moving beyond the single stories presented in many diverse children’s texts, which propagate stereotypes, and the value of complex representations and diverse cultural perspectives. She will have this conversation with the gatekeepers to children’s literature: parents, librarians, and teachers. The goal is to have a culturally-responsive, socially-conscious dialogue—that will be in conversation with a children’s literature exhibition at the Museum—to encourage participants to seek out and share diverse texts with their communities.

The Merry Wives of Windsor Weekend Intensive Workshop and Performance @ Opera Delaware Studios
May 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Based in the discipline of literature and engaging diverse community partners, Delaware Shakespeare’s “THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR” WEEKEND INTENSIVE will explore the relevancy of William Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” to the lives of a broad spectrum of Delawareans. Delaware Shakespeare will gather 30-40 participants from community partner organizations over two days to explore the themes of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” and then, via moderated discussion and theatrical learning activities, create short responses to the themes which participants find resonate with contemporary life. The objective is to foster conversation about and connections to Shakespeare with populations the larger public does not normally associate with Shakespearean insights. The culmination of the weekend will be a free performance by community members at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 5th.
