Another quick announcement -- I'll be at Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore tomorrow night in Berkeley. I'll be on a panel with Mitali Perkins (author of Monsoon Summer) and Nina Lindsay (of the Oakland Public Library) to offer some good summer reading choices. If that panel sounds familiar, we were the Usual Suspects a while back when we were all interviewed on KCRW to discuss cultural diversity in kids' literature. It's a hot topic still, so our choices are going to reflect that.
It's a ticketed event, but you can find out more information here! http://www.mrsdalloways.com/events/hot-reads-cool-summer-ages-6-11
See you tomorrow night! In the meantime, here's another image (not necessarily in the name of cultural diversity, but just me passing on love to all you out there...)
