Reading and Writing While White

This is such a thoughtful conversation on diversity in my MOONPENNY ISLAND and in the wonderful UNUSUAL CHICKENS FOR THE EXCEPTIONAL POULTRY FARMER, and on diversity in general. Much to ponder.


I’m someone new. Here’s the person responsible:

My daughter and her husband wanted to be surprised, so for the whole pregnancy we called the baby Little Legume. One week ago today, she became Little Linnea.  (Labor began on her due date! She is already a very conscientious child).

I have a strong feeling that writing children’s book is going to be more important to me than ever.
