Make Books Not War: Jane Addams Children's Book Awards Video

This video was recorded at the Channel 17 open access TV studio in Burlington, Vermont. There is no copyright on the video and it can be played anywhere by people who want to find out about the peace education work of the Jane Addams Peace Association. We focus on this year’s 2013 Jane Addams Children’s Book Award books in the context of Jane Addams’ legacy and the birth of the peace education mission at Hull House in Chicago, Illinois. Hull House is the cradle of social democracy in America. Peace education is an ideal we hold in our own arms to nourish and grow. We do this with love and commitment to Jane Addams as our wise foremother and to the many strong women who follow with us in her footsteps.

The Bloomington Branch of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom presented the 2013 Jane Addams Book Awards to Mrs. Ness' third-grade class at Fairview School on May 27, 2014.
