I am all for getting more diverse book published and into the hands of young readers. If you haven’t seen the movement that Kate Messner is a part of, I highly suggest you head to her blog and check it out.
I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to participate, but one thing I am going to do is give away two copies of Varian Johnson’s The Great Greene Heist that I will be purchasing from Bookbug in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I hope you will pay it forward.
Must be 13 or older to enter giveaway.
I’m really digging some of the #WeNeedDiverseBooks tweets, so I’m going to embed some of them down here.
