I love going in to the New Year with a plan. So I've signed up for the 2009 Diversity Rocks! Challenge.
I'm committing to reading 12 books by authors of color; at least six of these will be children's and young adult books, and the others will be adult selections. While I already read diverse authors (check out my bookshelf at the bottom of my blog) I welcome the challenge to read even more. I'm looking forward to seeking out diverse children's and YA authors in particular, as it will also benefit my students.
Thanks Ali, at Worducopia, for an exciting project for the New Year! Read On!
