Today was the official launch of the the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign! A hashtag campaign trying to give voice to the need for books that reflect the many varied experiences people have walking this Earth, and call attention to the fact that the books being published right now don't reflect diversity we see at Aldine everyday. Please read more about the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign on it's website.
I was so excited about this campaign I wanted to get the whole Aldine community involved! Here are a few thoughts by a few teens about why we need diverse books!
