c1Fe1The current issue puts the spotlight on diversity. We have several Top 10 lists: of diverse nonfiction for adults and for youth, diverse fiction for youth, and diverse audiobooks. Zara Rix contributes a roundup of the best YA fiction from micro-presses, Neal Hollands considers diversity in readers’ advisory, and Sarah Hunter provides a core collection of picture books that tell stories about refugees and immigrants.

Our celebration of 50 years of YA continues with guest speaker Joseph Bruchac on novels with Native characters. Elsewhere in the issue, Joyce Saricks waxes rhapsodic on audiobook narrator Grover Gardner and previews the top audiobook titles coming out this spring.
