I’ve found there are a lot of anti racists in children’s literature who read as inclusively as they live.

The fabulous Alex Gino is no exception. I am so honored to begin this month with Alex reading from Stand Up Yumi Chung!, Jessica Kim’s debut novel.


Alex Gino is author of middle grade novels You Don’t Know Everything, Jilly P! and the Stonewall Award-winning George. They love glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive. Born and raised on Staten Island, NY, they now enjoy living in Oakland, CA. For more information, visit
