More October Book News

Hey, everyone! Don't forget it's Banned Books Week. This year, there's a national "read-out" on YouTube, featuring videos of supporters reading from favorite banned and challenged books, and talking about their experiences. Read more about it here, and check out the videos here.

Also, our NFMGYA chair, Gina Ruiz, just let us know that the group of Latina mom bloggers known as the Mamiverse also has a really cool reading event going this month. In conjunction with launching a new book channel called Mamiverse Books, they're also launching Mamiverse Reads: "an online pledge drive that commits parents to making reading and books a life-long priority."

About their new books channel, the press release says: "This is the first non-trade oriented, digital resource for Latino
parents that want to foster in their children a love of reading, using
books that reflect the U.S. Latino experience."

Cheers to having more sites that encourage kids to read, and promote diversity in reading! We at the Cybils can get behind that.
