Writers Against Racism: I Caught My Friends!

On Friday, I caught two of my friends, in the act! Friend number one is reading HONEY BABY SUGAR CHILD by Alice Faye Duncan (Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, 2005), while friend number 2 is reading Mitali Perkins’s SECRET KEEPER (Delacorte Books 2009)

And while I have not yet reached my September 1st goal of catching 100 people, reading authors of color, I did have a blast getting this far. Thanks to all of you who submitted your pictures.

I’m also extending the timeline until September 30th! So get caught reading an AOC’s book!  We’re almost there.


  1. Yay! How wonderful and encouraging to see this, Amy. Thanks.
