Writers Against Racism: We’re On musings!

Just in case you missed it, Nilki Benitez, over at musings, was kind enough to profile W.A.R!  It’s a fantastic post with wonderful comments. Even my mom dropped by.

I called her and said, mom, you don’t even read MY blog and you’re leaving anonymous comments!

“I met Amy Bowllan through her wonderful blog at School Library Journal where I first learned about the project W.A.R. (Writers Against Racism).

The following is a guest post by Amy Bowllan, where she explains to me about the W.A.R. project, how it began and why it’s so important.  Amy is someone who by virtue of her friendship, and introducing me to her work, has truly changed my life.  Thank you so much, Amy!”
And thank YOU, Nilki!


  1. Hi Amy, it was so totally my pleasure and an honor! Thank YOU again. I LOVED seeing your proud Mama’s comment-I loved, loved, loved, loved it!! You are a true inspiration–keep up the hard work, and know you have a committed supporter in me!
