Thoughtful Piece on Authors of Color

At her blog Fledgling, Zetta Elliott recently wrote a post entitled Something like an open letter to the children's publishing industry. In addition to being a mighty strong argument for the recognition of works by authors of color, she includes links to some astounding and disheartening statistics.

Zetta's ideas have been batted around and intensely discussed on child_lit for the last few days. It's worthy of our attention, so do take some time to read it.

  1. I'm once again beginning to regret closing my child_lit account (which I did before the elections; I couldn't take the political... bickering)... Z. makes some good points. Thanks for the heads-up.
