  • This event has passed.


Thursday, November 4, 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm


In this special live event streamed in the SOPL meeting room, learners from around the world will be inspired and empowered to become change-makers and share their voices.

Join Amanda Gorman, poet, activist, and bestselling author, and New York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long as they discuss their new picture book Change Sings, which celebrates how anything is possible when our voices join together.

Your learners will hear Amanda do a live reading from the book, get a look at Loren’s illustration process, and listen as the two discuss how they became who they are today and how they hope learners will use their abilities to make a difference.
