In this special Flipgrid Live Event, 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.
Through Flipgrid Live Events you can connect your students with experts, and they can ask their questions live via a fully moderated chat.
Each teacher/caregiver who registers for this event will trigger a donation to First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides high quality, free and low cost new books and learning materials to schools/programs serving children in need. Penguin Random House will donate up to 5,000 copies of Change Sings and 5,000 copies of The Hill We Climb to be distributed by First Book to Title I schools by the end of 2022 school year.
