Black History Month, Week 5 / Women’s History Month, Week 1

Throughout February, we’re celebrating Black History Month by highlighting articles, speeches, and reviews from The Horn Book archive that are by and/or about African American authors, illustrators, and luminaries in the field. Look for the social media tag #HBBlackHistoryMonth17 on Facebook.com/TheHornBook and @HornBook.

On Wednesday, we switched gears: March is Women’s History Month, and now seems like an especially important time to celebrate the achievements of women and girls. Look for the hashtag #HBWomensHistory17 on Facebook and Twitter and here at hbook.com.
