Celebrate Diversity in February

How are you celebrating Black History Month at your library?

Brown Bookshelf

Every day in February, The Brown Bookshelf will be highlighting a different author or illustrator of color. The project, called 28 Days Later, is a celebration of children’s literature, and it began as a way “to bring awareness to creative artists producing stories that feature characters of color.” It’s a great way to learn about new titles to add to your collection.

For more authors and illustrators, you can also view the list of those featured in 2012. The Brown Bookshelf also has a page of links to other sites that discuss diversity in children’s literature. Do you have a favorite resource you use to learn about books featuring diversity? Share it with us in the comments!
