EDITED BY DIANE ROBACK AND NATASHA GILMORE
Welcome to our Spring 2016 Children’s Announcements Issue! Since the issue of diversity is such a timely topic, we spoke with a number of booksellers about how best to
stock and sell diverse books, despite challenges
presented in more homogenous neighborhoods.
In another feature, we take a look at a survey
revealing how kids read and buy books today.
We also profile author Sherman Alexie, who has
written his first picture book—his first book for
young readers since The Absolutely True Diary of
a Part-Time Indian. All this, plus our comprehensive
A-to-Z listings of titles being released by children’s
and YA publishers between February 1 and July 31.
