#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you like Eleanor and Park, try Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz because both of these YA novels feature love stories between seeming opposites.

Here it is, for the first time anywhere: The BEAAUUUUTIFUL cover design for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us!
It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.” We can’t wait!

I posted a few photos of an exhibition on children’s books in Finchingfield, a little village in Essex, that the local children put on last summer. Head over to the blogpost to see more.

My characters speak to whoever will hear their story. They have a journey with which anyone can choose to relate. So many Black authors don’t see a wider circulation of their work because in some places, the African-American section of a bookstore is just a half shelf or table pushed to the back. And sometimes, people are just too afraid to check out something that they think is only meant for Black people to understand. As if the book is completely written in Ebonics or something.

That’s why I think it’s time to uproot the African-American section from the bookstore. Yes, that means there may be an Wahida Clark urban fiction novel sitting next to your Candace Bushnell urban fiction. Donald Goines may finally sit next to Sue Grafton. But isn’t that where they belong? Segregating our fiction, by anything other than subject matter or genre (which I may be against as well, but that’s a whole ‘nother story), cheats us out of having options in our reading lives.
