“You Are Here”: An Arts & Letters Book Display
Presented by Megan Westman
Display created by Angela Cooke, Christina Tse, & Megan Westman
This poster presentation will share a book display curated for use at the Arts & Letters elementary school library in Brooklyn. The “You Are Here” display curates place-specific books and encourages neighborhood exploration. We present books set in Brooklyn and Manhattan and identify places to visit in these boroughs. The display entices students first to “read the book” and then to “see the sights.” The presentation will share reflections and images of the implemented display.
