Julius Lester Blogs

Julius Lester, amazing author of books like Day of Tears has announced that he is now blogging. His blog, A Commonplace Book, has amazing photography mixed with insightful essays. This is certainly one that should take the children’s lit blogging world by storm.
You can also visit his website to learn more about his writing. My favorites are his great folktale retellings and his work with Jerry Pinkney.
