By now I'm sure you've heard about The Brown Bookshelf - the collective efforts of African American authors and illustrators Paula Chase Hyman,
Varian Johnson, Don Tate, Kelly Starling Lyons , and Carla Sarratt to "[showcase] the best and brightest voices in African-American Children’s Literature, with a special emphasis on new authors and books that are “flying under the radar.”
One of the collective's projects is called "Twenty Eight Days Later" and will highlight 28 different African American children's and YA authors and illustrators during Black History Month. The list of 28 will be announced on January 15. Don Tate designed the poster at left. Do visit the Brown Bookshelf blog - and come back on Jan 15 for the announcement! Enjoy!
