In this special episode of the Team Friendship Podcast, we discuss the recent name change of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award by the ALA and ALSC. We welcome back our very special guest, Zoey, to have a round-table discussion on this topic. This name change has evoked many passionate responses, but we were able to have a meaningful conversation on human rights, racial reconciliation, and the importance of remembering and learning from our history. We hope you will take the time to listen in on this episode.

Quote from Caddie Woodlawn that Lauren couldn’t remember:
“The fear spread like a disease, nourished on rumors and race hatred. For many years now the whites had lived at peace with the Indians of Western Wisconsin, but so great was this disease of fear that even a tavern rumor could spread it like an epidemic throughout the country.” (Caddie Woodlawn, 119)
