Two More Best Lists

While all the more well-known youth awards are coming out of Midwinter, two of my personal favorite lists are also being discussed and decided on:

The Rainbow List highlights noteworthy GLBTRT for youth. Thanks to 2011-12 Rainbow Project jury  Francesca Burgess, Jane L. Cothron, Christie L. R. Gibrich (incoming chair, 2014), Christine Jenkins, Adela Peskorz, Victor Lynn Schill, and Anna C. White.

The Amelia Bloomer Project Top 10 list focuses on books with significant positive impact of women. Thanks to Amelia Bloomer Project committee members: Jennie Law (co-chair), Angela Semifero (co-chair), Ann Bever, Betsy Miguez, Katie Mitchell, Lalitha Nataraj, Linda Parsons, Kelly Rottmund, April Witteveen, and Joy Worland.

It's great to live in a world of outstanding books for youth!
