Diversity Notes

I am trying out a new idea. I am posting over at Rich in Color about YA books, but I would like a spot to gather Children's Lit and YA together particularly as it relates to diversity. Once a week I would like to compile the information and links that have come my way. So here goes my first attempt.

Essays or Interviews Online:

From Teen Librarian's Toolbox Mr. Internet: Teens on the Spectrum and Online by Lyn Miller-Lachmann
US Minorities Underrepresented in Children's Books on BBC News
Interview with Kim Johnson at DiversifYA
New Voices Award Winners: Where Are They Now? via Lee and Low
Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast interviews John Parra
Open Mic: Introducing Contributor Varian Johnson via Mitali Perkins
Diversity 101: Blurring the Lines Between Familiar and Foreign by Uma Krishnaswami via CBC Diversity
Resources for Finding Latino Kid Lit via SLJ

Book News and Reviews: 

My Basmati Bat Mitzvah was released this week. Here is a review from Finding Wonderland

Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table review from The Non-fiction Detectives

Ling and Ting Share a Birthday - a review via A Year of Reading
