Just wanted to check in with our blog. Just so you know I haven't forgotten my challenge to purchase one book (at least) by a diverse author per month and report it back to you - I'm here. I'm not reporting today, but wanted you to know I just got Street Love by Walter Dean Myers. It's a verse novel and you know I love verse novels in all their deceptive simplicity. I'm currently rebuilding my own poem by poem. I picked this in part due to the controversy about the book When We Was Fierce by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo discussed by Debbie Reese and the Reading While White Blog. I'm eager to share my thoughts in a week or so.
