Hello friends – This is just a short note to say that my friend Nakenya and I will be presenting on Diversity in Youth Literature at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit next Saturday, June 17. There is nothing like trying to put together a well-rounded presentation to help me find holes in my own reading history! Like, why are all the teen historical books I have tagged about Asian girls? That and a flood of people signing up for summer reading have been severely limiting my time to write reviews. I hope to be back writing soon – my to-be-reviewed list is getting really long. And, if you’re able, come say “hi” in Detroit!
