MIDDLE GRADE in the NEWS 8/30/2019

Below are a few articles and features I’ve enjoyed recently with a middle grade theme:

  1. I passed by the library and heard a boy ask, “Where’s the section on dragons.” ThINTHE NEWSe librarian kindly told him there wasn’t a special section just for dragons. Off they went to explore titles. They could have used this list of the 10 Roarsome Middle Grade Books about Dragons, including a new one by my friend, Gabrielle Byrne.
  2. Here’s a debate sure to invoke strong opinions: How LGBTQ Books Are Being Censored in Middle School. Authors Speak Out.
  3. The only other news is MARVELOUS MIDDLE GRADE MONDAY is not taking the day off this coming Labor Day Monday. Follow the details below if you have a selection to share.

If you would like to join the MMGM parade, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book on a Monday (contests, author interviews, or anything middle grade related also count). Email me the title of the book or feature and a link to your blog at gpcolo[at]gmail[dot]com

Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book or author you’re featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.

Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)

*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.
