National Air and Space Museum @airandspaceOn this day in 1921, Bessie Coleman became the first African American woman to earn a pilot's license.

Teen Librarian Toolbox Dyslexia Awareness Month @TLT16We need more standalone YA that is short and engaging. Some teens love the long, speculative fiction trilogies that seem to dominate the market, & I’m here for that. But many teens are over programmed and/or find reading challenging. If we want teens to read, we need more 4 them.
Yes, please. #mswl
Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
I’d absolutely love to get this! #mswl

Melissa Ann Singer @maseditorI would really love to see the fantasy novel equivalent of those fairy tales where someone has to complete a series of "impossible" tasks to achieve their goal and must think through them rather than fight.
Same here! Adult or YA. #MSWL
