From the Editor - March 2019

March is Women’s History Month, and we’d like to wish a very happy birthday to KidLitWomen*, a group started in March 2018 by Friends of the Horn Book Grace Lin (read her Magazine article “Speak with Us, Not for Us”) and Karen Blumenthal (read her Calling Caldecott interview with Julie Danielson). We encourage you to browse the KidLitWomen* archive, join the Facebook group, and listen to the podcast (hosted by Grace). And be sure to check out The Horn Book’s many links and articles about inspirational women making a difference — this month and all year long!
