Out and About in the Kidlitosphere

Pooja Makhijani, who contributed a guest column here recently, wrote an essay for the site PaperTigers called "Here to Stay: South Asian Literature for Children and Teens." She said,

...There has been a burst of literature for and about South Asian children and teens. Kids scouring libraries and bookstores today will find a good handful of realistic contemporary stories, set in specific South Asian or South Asian diasporic cultures, as well as a South Asian literary magazine for children, Kahani.

Meanwhile, in a bit of belated news, MotherReader and her 48-Hour Book Challenge reviewing marathon were featured at School Library Journal.

Congratulations to both writers!
