The Virginia Hamilton Conference on Multicultural Literature for Children

The Virginia Hamilton Conference is the longest-running event in the United States to focus exclusively on multicultural literature for children and young adults.

Honoring author Virginia Hamilton, the conference reflects a commitment to promoting cultural awareness and affirming cultural pride while addressing the array of issues which surround the concept of culture. The conference is held each April at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.

The Virginia Hamilton Conference is made possible in part through the generous support of Hamilton Arts Inc., Kent State University Bookstore, Akron-Summit County Library, Cleveland Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, and NEO-RLS. The Conference is sponsored by the School of Information and the College of Education, Health and Human Services.
