Chatting Up The CSK’s…

The fact that the Coretta Scott King award does not evoke as much “who will win?” chatter as the Newbery and Caldecott, in my opinion, is simply more proof that too often the books for and by African Americans remain somewhat on the periphery of children’s literature.

But that’s what places like The Brown Bookshelf and Black Threads in Kid Lit are for.

Our friend and 2008 Brown Bookshelf spotlight author, Kyra Hicks, is holding a mock CSK over at Black Threads.

See what she thinks may take home the most coveted children’s lit awards for writers of color and jump in with your own ballot.
