Fusion stories

The month of May will be Asian Pacific Heritage Month, and Fusion Stories is a Web site created by 10 Asian authors to showcase teens contemporary novels that move beyond the traditional tales set in Asia or the stories about immigrating to America.

I now have a whole new bunch of books on my "to read... sooner than later" list.

Quoted from the website : "As Newbery winner Linda Sue Park told author Cynthia Leitich Smith (Tantalize) during an on-line chat: “At last it seems we’re getting ready to go to stories where a person’s ethnicity is a part but not the sum of them.”"

Hurray to that !

Connor has read a couple of Linda Sue Park's books. He has really enjoyed her writing.

Hurray, for sure!
