Social Justice & Children’s/YA Lit reading list from Prof. Sarah Park Dahlen

I was excited to see this blog post from Prof. Sarah Park Dahlen, an assistant professor in the Master of Library and Information Science Program at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, with her LIS 7190 Social Justice and Children’s/YA Literature reading list for summer 2017. I’ve met Sarah a few times over the years through ALA and I follow her on Twitter, where she often tweets about diversity in children’s literature. Some of her scholarship has focused on representations of adoption in children’s books, and I was thrilled to see that she’s included Real Sisters Pretend (my Tilbury House picture book illustrated by Nicole Tadgell) on her reading list, which has tons of other excellent resources. Some are familiar and others are new to me, and I hope you’ll take a look through the whole list.
