May/June Horn Book Magazine

The May/June issue is out and a whole bunch of it is up online, including cover artist Marla Frazee and Allyn Johnston's argument for the picture book; Barbara Bader on children's library leader Augusta Baker; Chelsey Philpot on To Kill a Mockingbird, Andy Laties on why traditional publishing works so well, and Viki Ash and Betty Carter on What Makes a Good Baby Shower book? Also: my editorial on reading quotas, author Madeleine George defending herself against charges of "fatphobia," and author Russell Freedman defending himself against Marc Aronson.  Enjoy!

Just had time to sit down with this issue.
Madeleine George's article is great, deepening the conversation in an important way. Thank you for the whole issue, but especially for that article
