Dear students,

Please see below for an event that may be of interest to you.

Thursday, June 5, 7:30 PM
Educators Night: Focus on Diversity
Featuring Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster, authors of Promises Kept: Raising Black Boys to Succeed in School and in Life
Publisher book presentations, school partnership information, refreshments, and giveaways

This bi-annual event for educators (teachers, librarians, and administrators) is your chance to hear from publishers about new books, meet authors with books relevant to your classroom, and learn about Greenlight's partnership opportunities for your schools. For this spring event, Greenlight is proud to present Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster, whose book Promises Kept (along with the accompanying PBS documentary) offers an unprecedented, deeply researched guide for parents, educators, and anyone with a role in raising a black boy. Stephenson and Brewster will lead a discussion on race issues for educators, following a title presentation from publisher sales reps with a focus on racial diversity in titles, characters, and topics. Handouts will be provided, and all books will be available for sale at a special 20% discount tonight only! Wine and snacks will be provided before and after the hour-long event, and Greenlight Bookstore staff will be on hand to talk about book fairs, author visits, and other partnership opportunities for schools. You can also expect door prizes and free book-related materials for educators! Feel free to forward this invitation to any and all educators in your life who might be interested in this opportunity for professional development (and free books and wine). For educators only.

RSVPs are required for this event, and educator ID is required for special discount. Please email annie at greenlightbookstore.com<mailto:annie at greenlightbookstore.com> to RSVP and indicate your name, job title, grade, and school affiliation.
