Updates and Downloads

Coram Boy, the musical based on Jamila Gavin's Whitbread-winning YA novel, opened last month on Broadway, and garnered 6 Tony nominations. Wish I'd been there, Jamila!

Kimberley Griffiths Little, Anjali Banerjee, and Katia Novet Saint-Lot have launched new blogs. Katia's a student of mine whose picture book about a boy, a book, and the opening of worlds, was recently acquired by Tilbury House. I'm waiting anxiously, in the manner of an auntie, for the final title, and the last word on the protagonist's name. I love it when students' books finds homes.

Great new reviews and interviews for Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month at PaperTigers.

  1. Thank you, Uma. You ARE one of Ifeanyi's aunties, no doubt, and I'm so very proud of that. You know that's a tradition that India and Nigeria - and many other African countries - share : calling people who are close to the family, or simply older, which means you owe them respect, "auntie". I like it a lot.
