Through 28 Days Later, our Black History Month celebration of children’s book literature, we applaud and center Black authors and illustrators. Beginning February 1, we’ll feature a Black children’s book creator each day ending with a conversation about young adult novels on February 28.

Thank you, everyone, for your support. We received so many amazing suggestions. Our selection process included researching and considering dozens of names submitted through our website and internally.

Let’s spread the shine of these children’s literature stars by sharing the news far and wide. Make sure to come back on February 1 as the party starts with our first spotlight.
