Juneteenth Listening

Juneteenth Listening

Read More The Juneteenth holiday is just the right time for the pair of audiobooks we offer this week. The last day to download the pair is Juneteenth itself, so you have seven days to be sure you have them, and even have time to get some listening done to give the date more meaning in your own life. The occasion of Juneteenth, dating from 1865, is a good time to celebrate both freedom and equal rights.

Still Thinking about Whether to Promote SYNC in 2018?

Read More As AudiobookSYNC heads toward its 9th season, more and more teachers, librarians, and parents have discovered its benefits to the teens with whom they work and live.
