Hi, I'm Mrs. F-B!

Yesterday I participated in the #weneeddiversebooks campaign, and I'd encourage you to participate in the third part that comes tomorrow if you're able.  It's a campaign to raise the awareness of the need for diversity in characters in books.  Hopefully it will get the attention of the publishing world.

Day 1 - yesterday - was a photo campaign. Here's my photo:

Today - day 2 -  was a Twitter chat.

Tomorrow, the third portion of the campaign will begin. There will be a Diversify Your Shelves initiative to encourage people to put their money where their mouth is and buy diverse books and take photos of them. Diversify Your Shelves is all about actively seeking out diverse literature in bookstores and libraries.

I hope you can participate by looking  at the Tumblr, using your social media outlets to share the idea,  and diversifying your shelves! 

Here's to more diversity in books to meet our school populations' needs!
