Yasmine 🍊 ياسمين | ⵢⴰⵙⵎⵉⵏ @YasmineJibrilI’m not going to lie, Historical Fiction is in desperate need of diversity and discussion on social justice and its association with how we tell history. It’s the most underdeveloped genre.
YES. Send me your historical MG/YA about marginalized people, PLEASE, I want to hear from THEM. Especially in non-Western / non-European settings! #MSWL

Sophia Jimenez @SophiaJay42For all who want to get a better idea of my book tastes, I used to do roughly monthly threads about my favorite new releases, basically from Fall 2018 up until quarantine stressed me out too much. Please peruse, and also buy these books if you haven’t! Thread of links coming:
In lieu of a Soundcloud or official #MSWL (yet), I'm gonna drop this thread of some recent PB/MG/YA favorites (also occasional adult, but I won't be acquiring that). My taste is eclectic for sure, but I think there are some consistent themes :) twitter.com/SophiaJay42/st…
Excited to announce: After 4+ years on the editorial team at the Junior Library Guild, I’m going back to ACQUIRING as an associate editor at S&S Children’s/Atheneum! I start in October. Can’t wait to work w/authors again & buy diverse books—we kinda need them, don’t you think? 😁
