Writers Against Racism: Writers Making The New Yorker ‘Cut’

THIS JUST IN...actually made my day and has me right back on blog/track. It also comes via JULIE BOSMAN at The New York Times:

“The New Yorker has chosen its “20 Under 40” list of fiction writers worth watching, a group assembled by the magazine’s editors in a lengthy, secretive process that has provoked considerable anxiety among young literary types.”

This diverse group of writers are from ALL OVER the globe! One of them I introduced to you months ago, Chimamanda Adichie, speaks about the dangers of telling a single story.  Her powerful message of inclusivity in literature resonated so profoundly with my broadcast journalism students this year, that I will be implementing her TED video into my September curriculum.
