Doing this again.Will do all 12 months, and as many LGBT+ books for the summer as I can get.

For those who want to challenge themselves even more, each month has a theme to read towards.  These themes will help you tackle the different kinds of diversity.  On occasion we’ve given multiple themes in a month to give readers options (ie I had a lot of great choices, and I couldn’t decide).

JANUARY – diverse folktales/culture/mythology; or diverse retelling; or non-western setting:
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency--Alexander McCall Smith

FEBRUARY – poc: Black/African American:
Infants of the Spring--Wallace Thurman

MARCH – #ownvoices; or gender: female authors in male-dominated genres/non-fiction:
Rise of the Rocket Girls--Nathalia Holt

JUNE – LGBT+ pride summer: sexuality and gender identity: The Gap of Time--Jeanette Winterson

JULY – LGBT+ pride summer: sexuality and gender identity: Boy Meets Boy--David Levithan

AUGUST – mental health/addiction

SEPTEMBER – poc: hispanic/latinx

OCTOBER – physical/sensory/cognitive/intellectual/developmental disabilities

NOVEMBER – poc: Native American

DECEMBER – religious minorities

There’s sort of an extra level to the LGBT+ pride summer in June and July — aim to check off as many letters in LGBTQQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual) as possible!
