The Sunday Salon

Color Online Summer Book Drive
May 30-July 1.

For those of you who don't know, I run the library you see here at a local nonprofit. The agency will run its annual summer program. In between activities, we hope the girls will visit the library. This is the best time to run our book drive. Please consider promoting our drive our your blog. One book, one reader at a time.

This week I blogged and read less. In my current reading stack: Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson, Cuba 15 by Nancy Osa, Aya by Marguerite Abouet and Clement Oubrerie, Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger. It's been a busy week. Still, I got a few things done:
  • C.O.R.A. Diversity Roll Call. We begin our new posting schedule this Friday, June 5th at Color Online. Join us.
Hope you all had a great week. Happy reading.

I'd love to put together a short list! I've started putting together a list of authors and works I think are important, starting with Borges and moving forward cronologically. I'll let you know when I have something that looks complete :D

Can you include YA? I'm hoping for a diverse list of Latino writers. It doesn't need to be labor intensive and shorter seems to be read more than longer lists. Thanks.

It's day four and already books are listed as fulfilled on our wish list page and I've received e-mails about books being shipped direct.

Thank you.
