From the Editor - February 2022

We’re continuing to celebrate Black History Month on and at #HBBlackHistoryMonth on Twitter and Facebook, with engaging articles, fascinating interviews, informative reviews, and more, every day in February (including this brand-new picture-book biographies booklist). Coming in like a lion is March, which is Women’s History Month, and this issue of Notes features picture-book biographies about diverse and important women; graphic novels and memoirs starring memorable girls; and female-centered YA historical fiction adventures. The upcoming March/April Horn Book Magazine — the one with this unforgettable cover — has even more. Subscribe and you’ll see!
