Laurence Yep served as the
inaugural speaker of our children’s lecture series. Yep’s
interest in intersecting cultures, differing perspectives and the
links between generations of people all illustrate the rich
diversity of ideas found in children’s literature. His stories
excite children and teens by placing them in unfamiliar worlds
with protagonists who share their sense of wonder and discovery.
