Meet the authors who adapted “An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States” for young people. Spanning more than 400 years, this classic history from the bottom up examines the legacy of indigenous peoples’ resistance, resilience and steadfast fight against imperialism. The original book has now been fully adapted by renowned curriculum experts Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza for middle grade and young adult readers. It includes discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading and other materials to encourage students, teachers and general readers to think critically about their own place in history. The author talk begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Lewis Auditorium. The event is for teens and adults.

KOOP Adventure Play brings interesting materials and invites kids to play their way. Child-directed play is prioritized in this space, and children often bring their imaginations to life, try new things and access their inner creativity. This is one of 20 free KOOP Adventure Play events around C-U this summer and starts at 1 p.m. Saturday in Lewis Auditorium. The event is made possible in part by the Urbana Public Arts Program.
