Methinks the issue of spreading the word on kiddie lit by people of color is going (has gone?) viral.
Jade Lennox posted a list, broken down by sub-genre no less, of YA written by authors of color.
Then there’s the Writers of Color 50 Book Challenge, which isn’t exclusively children’s books, but all the better.
And because no good viral marketing campaign is complete without MORE lists, the Writers of Color 50 Book Challenge offers a comprehensive Booklist that covers books from just about any ethnic group you could throw at them.
We’re considering re-configuring our pages here at the BBS to make it easier to find books by sub-genre, so don’t be surprised if some of the above children’s-relevent lists end up linked elsewhere on our site.
It’s all about spreading the word.
