The Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP) founded the Américas Award in 1993 to encourage and commend authors, illustrators and publishers who produce quality children’s and young adult books that portray Latin America, the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States, and to provide teachers with recommendations for classroom use.

Join the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs and the Library of Congress for a virtual conversation with Mitali Perkins, author of 2020 Américas Award winning children’s book “Between Us and Abuela.” Mitali will share context for her beautiful book, as well as tips for classroom incorporation. The 60-minute program will also include an open Q&A with attendees. Educators and parents alike are highly encouraged to attend, and all are welcome!
