Book Spotlight: FLYING LESSONS and Other Stories. #wndbflyinglessons

I'm very excited today to spotlight a new book that released just yesterday.  

That book is Flying Lessons & Other Stories.  


About Flying Lessons

It is a middle grade anthology published in partnership with We Need Diverse Books! Edited by WNDB cofounder and president Ellen Oh, this powerful collection features ten unique stories from a group of award-winning and New York Times bestselling diverse children’s authors. The distinguished list includes:

KWAME ALEXANDER
SOMAN CHAINANI
MATT DE LA PEÑA
TIM FEDERLE
GRACE LIN
MEG MEDINA
KELLY J. BAPTIST
WALTER DEAN MYERS
TIM TINGLE
JACQUELINE WOODSON

These vibrant stories highlight the unique experiences of minority voices with authenticity and astute insight. Covering everything from basketball dreams and family fiascoes to first crushes and new neighborhoods, this bold anthology celebrates the uniqueness and universality in every single one of us through stories that will resonate across all audiences.

This anthology looks absolutely fantastic.  In my new position as a media specialist I'm seeing more and more why we need books with diversity.  This is definitely on the top of my list of must-reads for 2017.
