KidLit Rally for Black Lives

Around the nation, people are hurting. Kids in particular may be feeling unsure and questioning how they can help their family, friends, and neighbors. Several award-winning authors such as Kwame Alexander, Jacqueline Woodson, Jason Reynolds and many other leading voices in children's literature are hosting a KidLit Rally for Black Lives on June 4th for a talk with young people from 6:00-6:45 p.m. CT and 6:45-7:30 p.m. CT with parents, educators, and librarians. You can access the rally on Facebook Live @THEBROWNBOOKSHELF

By learning together, having conversations, and listening with openness, we can support understanding and community healing.


Mr. Timothy by Louis Bayard

Mr. Timothy by Louis Bayard (2003)
Did you ever wonder what may have happened to Tiny Tim, the Cratchett family, or old Mr. Scrooge? Bayard answers that question in a very imaginative and mysterious way. Part historical fiction, part mystery, and part psychological thriller, this book is a wonderful read.
