What Should I Read?
Dear readers, I need your help. I’m putting together an independent study on children’s/young adult literature for next semester, and I get to create my own reading list based solely on what I want to read. There doesn’t need to be a theme (i.e. ‘censorship’ or ’19th-century American children’s literature’), though I am trying to stick with nonfiction – books about children’s literature, publishing, authors, etc. rather than children’s/YA novels themselves.
Below are some readings I’m considering. I’d love to hear your thoughts, especially if you’ve read any of these or know of other books/articles/etc. I should look at. What would you recommend? What have you been meaning to read? If you were creating a list, what would be on yours?
