It’s back! I went on a short hiatus as I wove my way around the web on blog tour. But I missed sharing the wonderful tidbits I find during my meanderings. So here again are some posts you may have missed this week in my Twitter feed.
This week, I think the most thought provoking article I found was the one about racial profiling in YA literature. A librarian discovered by talking to teens that many of them feel they’re being stereotyped in many novels. You’ll find the link under the YA Lit subheading of this post.
Also, since it’s Friday, I’m blogging at Honey Creek Books. This week I dug up some trivia about the Fall Equinox and Harvest Moon happening this month. Fascinating stuff. Really.
Great advice from a master. http://fb.me/294qVL4oh
