Authoring Stories About Cultures Not Our Own by Katie Quirk – a re-blog of a great idea

Authoring Stories About Cultures Not Our Own by Katie Quirk.

I haven’t had a chance to read Katie’s book yet – Procured as an ARC at ALA midwinter, it spent the months between then and the end of the school year in the hands of 4th and 5th graders, who fought to be next on the list. They clamored for this one! Now, my battered copy is mine again to enjoy.
After reading Katie’s insightful article, I must read it – can’t wait – both her thoughts about writing the book and the responses of my students – move it to the top of my reading stack.  I love reading. What do you want to read next, and why?
