Generational Poverty in Ohio and Beyond: Christina Dorr


Author, speaker and media specialist Christina Dorr, PhD, appeared as part of the Ohioana virtual Book Festival on April 29-May 1. Her most recent book is Profiles in Resilience: Books for Children and Teens That Center the Lived Experience of Generational Poverty. Dorr started work on this book after discovering that librarians who had grown up in middle class or higher income homes had difficulties understanding children living in generational poverty. Since Dorr identifies with growing up in poverty, she brought her insight into the issues that the books explore.
