28 Days Later
Kyra E. Hicks, author of Martha Ann's Quilt for Queen Victoria and who also blogs at Black Threads in Kid's Lit just informed me about 28 Days Later, "an effort by Brown Book Shelf to promote African American authors and illustrators of children's and YA lit." Their first initiative will be to highlight 28 different African American YA and children's authors and illustrators during Black History Month, beginning February 1st with Christopher Paul Curtis, author of multiple-award winningElijah Of Buxton.
This is an absolutely wonderful initiative, and I'm looking forward to learning more about these authors and illustrators.
Learn more about 28 days later and see the schedule here!
Thanks for the info Kyra!
