READING LIBERIA is a program through which books for Liberian children are being written by Liberian authors and Liberia’s teachers are being trained how to use them effectively in their classrooms.
Kathy has blogged about her experiences in Liberia. (She went in 2009, 2010, and 2011.)
She has also written several articles:
- Summer 2009 for IBBY-Canada, the organization that put her name forward
- Spring 2010 for CANSCAIP
- Summer 2010 for the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.
In 2011, she wrote a piece about her work in Liberia for Truth Perceived, a high school non-fiction anthology. It was published by McGraw-Hill Ryerson in 2012.
Kathy is hoping to continue supporting the work of Liberian writers through “Laptops for Liberia” – an initiative designed to match up the likely availability of used laptops here in Canada and the dire need for them in Liberia.
