Congratulations to the 15th Class of 28 Days Later Honorees!

It’s our favorite time of year! We are proud to announce the honorees of our 15th annual 28 Days Later campaign, a Black History Month celebration of outstanding Black children’s book creators. Each day during February, we will showcase an author or illustrator whose work reflects parts of who we are.

It’s more important than ever to raise awareness and support books by children’s book creators from around the African Diaspora. Each year, more books are traditionally published about us than by us. That has to change.  Our mission is to raise awareness of the many Black voices writing for young readers. Through our 28 Days Later campaign, we want to empower children, parents, educators, librarians and booksellers with names of authors and illustrators who are too often unsung.
