(3.) Publisher's Weekly: Elizabeth Acevedo Wins 2018 National Book Award


Elizabeth Acevedo was just named the 2018 winner of the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for her book The Poet X, a New York Times-bestselling novel-in-verse about a Dominican-American heroine in Harlem who discovers slam poetry as a way to understand her mother’s religion and her own relationship to the world. I recommended this book The Poet X a few months ago in issue #7. Highly, highly recommend you get the audio version & it's a great read for young adults too.
