2015 Diversity Reading Challenge

An Unconventional Librarian’s 2015 #DiversityReadingChallenge

IT’S TIME FOR DIVERSITY!

I’ve been wanting to start my own reading challenge and I’ve finally done it! Let’s ring in 2015 with a reading challenge that celebrates the multicultural reader and challenges the status quo.

Presenting the Diversity Reading Challenge!fd

If you’re an avid consumer of multicultural reads, then this challenge will suit you just fine.  There are no complicated rules to this challenge; participate how you want, when you want.

Great reading challenge, thank you! I’m adding this to my “2015 Reading Challenges” board on pinterest. Just wrote a blog post about reading challenges on Wednesday on my book blog. I’m so glad I learned about your challenge – it looks like so much fun and a GREAT list of diverse reading!

What a great challenge. I review a lot of diverse books on my website. I’m glad to see so many taking this seriously. Recently reviewed Sharon Draper’s new book “Stella by Starlight” last Tuesday. Reviewed a PB today that ecourages children to think beyond stereotypical gender roles and expectations.

Hey, Pam!! We met at KidLitCon. Your presentation was great and I LOVE your 2015 Diversity Reading Challenge BUT the wording leaves my book out in the cold. As Twinja Book Reviews says, “Delta Legend KILLS in diversity!”

Books are one of the last vestiges of storytelling where we, the reader, get to cast the characters in our mind. And I’m one of the few authors around who doesn’t go for casting on the cover—so no person of color on the cover. Protagonist of color, yes (not to mention a richly diverse cast of characters all around).

So there’s my two cents worth. Don’t spend it all in one place!

What an awesome challenge. I’ll be blogging about this next Tuesday at suebe.wordpress.com. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get busy reading!
