Hi there! I’ve been doing some housekeeping around the site and wanted to quickly summarize what’s new for folks. As always, I appreciate you stopping by.
- Updates to the Publications, Podcasts, Multimedia page. You’ll find a link to my new column with Ed Leadership, my guide for educators for Jacqueline Woodson’s latest picture books (I was so honored to write these), and other resources I’ve written that you might find useful.
- Updates to my Year-In-Reading page, where I chronicle what has kept my reading life moving along, albeit at a very different pace. But, it’s my pace, and the books I’ve read have been quite lovely.
- Updates to where to Find Me and How to Contact Me. Thank you for reaching out and bringing me to your schools! I have limited availability for 2023; if you’d like to work together, please, be in touch and we’ll see if a collaboration makes sense.
- A dedicated page to my book, Literacy is Liberation: Working Toward Justice Through Culturally Relevant Teaching. The book continues to be so well received! Thank you for letting me know, leading book studies with your faculty about it, and DOING THE WORK. Please take a minute to share a positive review wherever you got your copy, as word-of-mouth from other readers is the strongest endorsement I could hope for (and for which I’d be so grateful). I’m here to help you, too! Let me know if you need me. I’d love to work with you.
Finally, it’s still August. Barely. I’m holding on to this poem by Lorca; last stanza from “August” is below.
The little boys eat
brown bread and delicious moon.
