The workshop will feature award-winning children's author Karen Lynn Williams, who will discuss personal stories of the Hmong, Mexican, Norwegian, Polish and other immigrant groups in Wisconsin. Attendees will have the opportunity to bring international reading materials back to their classrooms, schools or public libraries and gain practical information about the background of children and families within their schools and communities.
