Dr Lakeisha Johnson on recommendations for diverse books

Dr Lakeisha Johnson is a Professor at Florida State University in the Communication Science and Disorders program.

In this interview, we discuss her website dedicated to diverse books, Maya’s Book Nook, and some of Dr Johnson's favourite books.

You can also learn the best way to choose your 'MUST haves' books on your bookshelf for diversity and how to engage in dialogic reading, using the acronym CROWD.

We also hear direct from Maya (of Maya's Book Nook fame) about her favourite book and why she enjoys it so much. This was a hard choose for her, because she has read over 1,000 books already!

Watch the livestream on Facebook on Friday 6th November here.
