Order your copy NOW.

We are just dotting the is of the May/June issue celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Coretta Scott King Awards. Phew! I don't think we've published an issue with quite so many moving parts. I speak literally, figuratively, and emotively.

I hope our subscribers appreciate this landmark issue, and I wanted to let the rest of you know that single copy purchases can be reserved now. (We've already bumped up the print run twice but I am still nervous that we will run out.) Single copies are $15.00 including postage and may be ordered from:

Payment (by check or credit card) must be made before the Magazine will be mailed. We're very proud of this issue and hope you will like it, too.

Is it possible to submit my own books for reviews? My publisher is not willing to submit them for me. Thank you for your help in this matter and I apologize for asking this question here.

This is great! I saw the Coretta Scott King Book Award winners posted on the American Library Association's site a while back. It's unfortunate that magazines don't have the opportunity to win it.

This is an outstanding keepsake issue. I can’t wait to receive a copy.
