Brown Bookshelf Calls for African-American Children’s Literature nominations for “28 Days Later” project during Black History Month 2008

The Brown Bookshelf is a group of five authors and illustrators, who have joined together to showcase the best and brightest voices in African-American children’s literature. Their special emphasis is on new authors and books that are relatively unknown and not receiving the recognition they deserve.

In conjunction with the African-American Read-In Chain, the Black Caucus of NCTE, and the African American Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, The Brown Bookshelf is sponsoring 28 Days Later. The project will profile one author daily during the first 28 days of February, Black History Month.

Nominations are being accepted until December 1st. E-mail your nomination to or post your response on the website,, where you’ll also find more information about the group.
