Today is the start of our new summer reading series “If you liked ___, Read this next” for diverse books. The #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign is deeply committed to increasing the visibility of the wonderful diverse books that are published, because these books do not get the marketing and promotion that blockbuster books get. We want to do our part in raising the profile of diverse books and bringing them to a larger audience. Help us spread the word! We will have a new “If You Liked” post every day of the summer!
The first book in our series is the YA book Akata Witch by Nnedi Okarafor. You really need to read this author, about whom the great Ursula LeGuin said: “There’s more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor’s work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics.” So what are you waiting for? Read Akata Witch next!
