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!
