I loved Kelly Barnhill's middle grade fantasy The Witch's Boy. When I heard she had a new novel, I was dying to get my hands on it but I was also worried it wouldn't be as good as The Witch's Boy, which amazed me.
Yesterday we had a request for recommended books on feminism for middle grade readers. (Thanks, Camille!) It turned out that we had tons of ideas, but they all came from the YA section. Now that we've had some more time to think about it, we've put together a collection -- broad, but not exhaustive -- of resources for readers who embrace feminism, but aren't quite ready for bell hooks, Simone de Beauvoir, or even Here We Are, a new anthology for teen readers.
So. How does one weather a hard season? With fortitude, knowledge, and understanding -- three things that Rejected Princesses has in spades.
Where should we start?
Hidden Figures has everything: It's a new look at a familiar topic, it's based on solid and thorough research, and Margot Lee Shetterly pulls it all together into a well-written story that keeps you turning the pages even if you already know how it's going to turn out.
Over the year we hosted hundreds of events and got to meet hundreds of interesting authors. Since we had all of these interesting brains coming through the store, we decided to try and capture a little bit of extra creativity from all of these creative people.
