May IPOC Releases

This is quite a month for releases! I always miss some; it’s good to know there are more books out there! Please, add them in the comments. I’m woefully lacking Native American and Latinx titles. I’m working on being affiliate and some books will link there. Continuing this relationship will result in changes to my blogging platform (I cannot earn income from a free WordPress site), so stay tuned.
