KBB presents at the 2016 IBBY South America Conference
October 8, 2016
Kids’ Books Bolivia (KBB) was invited to present on October 7 at the 2016 IBBY South America Conference (International Board on Books for Young People). Co-presenters were Heidi Baer-Postigo, Academic Director of SIT Bolivia and Founding Director of KBB, and local arts-educator Aliya Ellenby (Spring 2006 SIT Bolivia alum), creator of the KBB Educator Toolkits (published in 2012 with a grant from the International Reading Association).
They presented the three newest books written by students during the Spring/Fall 2015 semesters, as well as the initiation of arts-education workshops to use the books dynamically in schools, libraries, and beyond. The presentation ended with a creative reading of Camila and the Dancing Dreams (written by Maya Salas, SIT Fall 2015) and included wonderful audience participation and sound effects. Heidi and Aliya were presenters alongside a group of authors, researchers, and organizations working in various aspects of children’s literature in Bolivia.
