American Library Association Honors "America's Boy"

Friday, January 25, 2008

I am excited to announce that my first memoir, AMERICA’S BOY, has been named to the American Library Association’s inaugural “Rainbow List,” a newly created recommended list of books dealing with positive GLBT issues and situations for children and teens up to the age of 18. The list was announced at the 2008 ALA Conference in Philadelphia and honors books published from 2005-2007. The list is comprised of a select few quality fiction and nonfiction titles that present positive views of alternative lifestyles.

The list of honored 2006 nonfiction titles, which includes AMERICA’S BOY, also names terrific books by author Alison Bechdel and Hillary Carlip, as well as fabulous books from writers Perry Moore, James St. James, Christian Burch, Alex Sanchez and Brent Hartinger, to name just a few.

Thanks to the American Library Association for all they do to keep America reading! (And reading a breadth of diverse literature!)

I love it when people have a wide variety of content. It keeps me interested.You have posts other than reviews and memes. (I think the memes part is a given—no one likes a blog that’s mostly memes!) But lately I’ve been getting sick of book reviews in other blogs. I do like reading them, but if I subscribe to a blog and it’s review after review after review, I lose interest. Click here to buy essays. I just get sick of reading book reviews sometimes! I love your blog if you mix things up a little. Publish discussion posts, or something about your real life, or some blogging tips.
