As the purveyor of young people’s literature, children’s bookstores and booksellers can be an aide to young readers as they navigate the world. Books and bookstores are in a unique position to speak for the underdog and lift silenced voices so that they are heard. In this special topics panel, children’s booksellers will share how they use their bookstore as a platform and a space to create opportunities for activism and young activists in their communities.
