Ball State University launches free digital literary magazine promoting diversity in children’s and young adult literature

Contributed by: Darolyn "Lyn" Jones
Published: Tuesday, 26 January 2016 3:00 PM
We are shaped by the stories we read as children and retell as adults. Diversity in children’s and young adult literature is critical in creating and sustaining culture and community.

Rethinking Children's and Young Adult Literature is a result of the collaboration between Ball State University professor, Dr. Darolyn “Lyn” Jones and her teacher education, creative writing, and English students and George and Francis Ball Distinguished Professor, Dr. Jennifer Palilinos and her journalism media students.

In this innovative free, digital, interactive literary magazine, we have married story, art, and media as a way for your readers to experience the inclusiveness of stories that focus on topics promoting social justice.

In this special themed edition on LGBTQ, join us in hearing from and reading new works from celebrated children’s book writer Leslea Newman, viewing featured book trailers from a variety of authors including Newman, Adam Silvera, and Robert Munsch, checking out supporting teacher strategies and resources, and reading original children’s and young adult works which allow the reader to rethink gender and orientation. Syd the Fella is a parody of Cinderella where Syd is looking for a prince, subtext is a play about adolescents experiencing romance and crossed wires, Bell Tower, where an African American girl confronts the church and her community about her identity, and Tiffy's Story, a children’s picture book that explains transgender.
