We’re the People: Summer Reading 2015

I’m currently working with Debbie Reese, Sujei Lugo, Lyn Miller-Lachman, Sarah  Park DahlenNathalie Mvondo and Eboni Elizabeth Thomas to create a summer reading list. We’d like to include picture books, chapter books, middle grade and young adult written by authors of color. The YA list could include adult books with teen appeal.

What have you read recently or what are some books that you might not ever forget? While we’d like to promote new titles, we also want to include affordable titles and those would more likely be older books that have gone to paperback. But, we really want to include good, solid fun reading to recommend to young readers for the summer. We’d like to have your recommendations now through 10 May.

  1. Things I’ll Never Say, Short Stories About Our Secret Selves (Candlewick/Walker 2014), a page-turning anthology with a wonderful “list” of contributing authors. I also suggest The Good Braider by Terry Farrish. At http://www.thepiratetree.com we have reviewed a number of books by author’s of color. Lynn contributes reviews to this “social justice” blog site.
