Join Julie Olsen Edwards, Cabrillo College Instructor and local author, for a compelling selection of award winning children’s books. These remarkable books, for children four to eight and nine to fourteen, include stories about solving problems courageously; overcoming prejudice and fear; understanding human needs with compassion and creativity; promoting an understanding of the role of women in society; and creative solutions to war, social injustice, racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, and the concerns of the physically challenged.
Julie has received a “Visionary Leadership Award;” Children and Families Heroes Award for Achievements in Improving the Lives of Children and Families; Meritorious Service Award for Teaching Excellence; and Woman of the Year: Women In Education Award, to name only a few of her achievements.
“Building A New Generation of Commitment to Social Justice” reaches out to parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, childcare workers, and anyone interested in affecting positive change for the next generation.
