Web Site of the Week: Rich in Color
Rich in Color is a resource for youth, librarians, teachers, parents, and teen mentors who are looking for new young adult (YA) fiction. The blog, maintained by a small team of teachers, writers, and book lovers, features recently released YA novels authored by writers of color and First Nations writers. The team at Rich in Color is committed to both publicizing books scheduled for release (maintaining an up-to-date book release calendar on the site) and to critically reviewing new books. Books of all genres are covered – including realistic fiction, fantasy, science fiction, and historical fiction – and often feature LGBTQA characters of color. As the site notes, “We believe that teens (and adults!) should be able to find themselves in the books that they love to read.” Readers will also find interviews and book lists by topic. [MMB]
