In this webinar, recorded August 11, 2020, co-author Dr. Leigh-Ann Webb and illustrator Ashleigh Webb discuss We’re Going to Be O.K., their picture book about staying healthy during COVID-19 as well as mental health support designed for young children (ages 5-9), in conversation with Mack McLellan.

During times of crisis, young school-aged children are particularly vulnerable to anxiety and stress. The COVID-19 pandemic can be scary for this age group. We’re Going to Be O.K. was created in response to this need, and was recognized by the Emory Global Health Institute’s COVID-19 Children’s eBook Competition as an excellent way to provide information to children.

This webinar is part of our Virginia Festival of the Book’s “Shelf Life” series. The series will continue to bring you new authors on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the coming weeks. Sign up for the Virginia Festival of the Book’s e-newsletter to learn about future discussions as they are announced.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
