Kirsten Cappy and Anne Sibley O’Brien
WELCOMING IMMIGRANTS WITH CHILDREN’S LITERATURE

As part of the Maine Migrations statewide celebration, Print: A Bookstore is honoring the contribution that children’s literature plays in the larger immigration conversation. Author and illustrator Anne Sibley O’Brien [http://annesibleyobrien.com/] will share her new picture book SOMEONE NEW, the companion to her award-winning I’M NEW HERE. In her interconnected books, new arrival students and “long term” students explore belonging and friendship. Anne will be joined by Kirsten Cappy of I’m Your Neighbor Books [https://www.imyourneighborbooks.org] who will share other books set in immigrant communities.  Additionally they will demonstrate how Maine has taken the lead nationally on using children’s books to welcome immigrants with the creation of the Welcoming Library [https://www.imyourneighborbooks.org/wl/].  Audience members will have the opportunity to purchase immigration titles for the benefit of Greater Portland schools.
