Coronavirus Cancellations In Childlit

Over the coming weeks I will be covering book launches within the children's literature world and other childlit-related events that are cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak in this country. You can help out these authors by spreading the word about their new books, following them on social media, recommending their books to your libraries, and, of course, purchasing them when you can. I'm collecting this information on a catch-as-catch-can basis. Many more authors and illustrators will be affected who you won't see here.

The Only Black Girls In Town

On March 12th, Brandy Colbert announced that her March tour dates for her  middle grade novel The Only Black Girls in Town have been cancelled.

The Only Black Girls in Town, published by Little, Brown and Company Books for Young Readers, deals with the only two black girls in town, one a newcomer, who find a box of old journals and set to work to determine what that's about.

Brandy Colbert is the author of five books for young people and a contributor to anthologies. She is also a teacher in a MFA program and a copy editor.

My Life As A Potato

March and April events for My Life As A Potato by Arianne Costner have been postponed.    

My Life As A Potato, published by Penguin Random House, is about a boy forced to become a school mascot. It is Arianne Costner's debut book.
