We are so excited to present our #ReadYourWorld Book Jam 2019 in conjunction with Children’s Book Council! This year we have 10 amazing authors with unique book lists to share. Each author is also doing a book giveaway!
Please welcome e.E. Charlton-Trujillo with her list of LGBTQIA+ Books Bridging The Gap of “Other” We are giving away 3 galleys of her book, Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution. To enter, please fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom.
The books on this list celebrate the beautiful and sometimes challenging experience of being LGBTQIA+ while exploring universal themes of adolescence. Diverse books that address the intersectionality of race, orientation, class, gender, ability, neurodiversity, and religion (to name a few) allow readers to continue conversations around how we think about and look at those often perceived as “different.” That is the magic of story. It gives us heart and humor, grief and sadness — it gives us a safe place to realize that within our differences is a shared core of humanity.
