Authors Malinda Lo and Cindy Pon have started a new reading challenge on their blog, Diversity in YA Fiction. It’s called the Diversify Your Reading Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to get participants reading MG and YA books by and/or about people of color or LGBT and write an essay – 500 words or more – about their diverse reading experience. There’s also prizes.
For more information, visit the Diversity in YA Fiction blog or click the link above.
I’m taking the challenge. What about you? Can you add a few diverse books into your summer reading pile?
