Brown Bookshelf's 28 Days Later
Until December 1, 2007, you may still nominate a book to be featured during Black History Month over at The Brown Bookshelf. Here's the info:
The Brown Bookshelf, in conjunction with the African-American Read-In Chain, the Black Caucus of NCTE, and AACBWI, is proud to present 28 DAYS LATER.
During the first twenty-eight days of Black History Month, we’ll be profiling a different children’s or young adult author here ... But to pull this off, we need your help. We’re looking for the best new and unnoticed works by African-American authors. From picture books to novels, books fresh off the presses to treasured classics–whatever books you like, we want to know. We’re specifically looking for new books and books that have “flown under the radar,” but you can nominate any book, as long as it’s a children’s or YA book written by an African-American author published by a traditional publisher for the trade market.
We’ll be taking nominations from November 1st to December 1st. Just post a comment here at the website, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can nominate as many books as you like. And be sure to leave your email address, as each nominator automatically has the chance to win one of our great giveaways.
