    Listen to a local expert to learn tips and techniques for discussing racism, discrimination and bulling with the children in your life.

    "Front Desk" by Kelly Yang, our Youth Novel Idea 2021 relates the story of young Chinese immigrant Mia and her life in America. This novel tells Mia's story through racism, discrimination and bullying. Reading this novel together is the perfect opportunity for parents to have meaningful conversations with their children on these topics. And those conversations can be difficult.

    Whether your child is facing discrimination and racism, or is witnessing it, our presenters will offer tips and tools to help guide parents through these difficult conversations.

    After a presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions. If you already have questions for our expert, please email them to chandrav@deschuteslibrary.org.

    Front Desk, the award winning debut middle-grade novel by Kelly Yang tells the story of Mia Tang, who helps her parents manage a motel in Southern California as they pursue their American dream. As they navigate a system hostile to immigrants, they form a community based on trust and love.
    Kelly Yang was born in China and immigrated to America with her parents when she was six years old. She went to college at the age of 13 and law school at the age of 17. After law school, she gave up law to pursue her passion of writing and teaching children writing. She is the founder of The Kelly Yang Project, a leading writing and debating program for kids in Asia.*yani* *zm* *asl*

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    A link to this live presentation will be available beginning Saturday, May 1 at 3:30 p.m.

    Join award-winning author Kelly Yang for a live presentation about her book Front Desk, the Novel Idea 2021 Youth Edition selection.

    About the Book: Front Desk
    Front Desk is a debut, middle-grade novel about 10-year-old Mia Tang, who manages the front desk of a motel while her parents clean the rooms. As recent immigrants from China and desperate for work and money, they take a job managing a rundown motel in Southern California. The owner, Mr. Yao, is a crude cheapskate who exploits them; while her mother (who was an engineer in China) does the cleaning, Mia works the front desk and tries to cope with demanding customers and other recent immigrants.

    About the Author: Kelly Yang
    Kelly Yang was born in China and immigrated to America with her parents when she was six years old. Her family settled in Southern California, where she and her parents worked in three different motels. She eventually left the motels and went to college at the age of 13 and law school at the age of 17. After law school, she gave up law to pursue her passion of writing and teaching children writing. She is the founder of The Kelly Yang Project, a leading writing and debating program for kids in Asia.
