Morning links: October 17
What I’m reading this morning:
At Latinxs in Kid Lit: Bilingual Border Kids: The Dilemma of Translating Summer of the Mariposas into Spanish. “I’m sorry, but not all books need to be translated into some neutral, RAE-approved literary Spanish. Some are so deeply rooted in a place, in a community, that we have to insist on breaking “the rules.”“
At Teen Vogue: How to Legally Protest as a Public School Student.
At the OED: Frances Hardinge’s Five Favourite Words.
At the NYT: Instagram Now Home to Classic Feminist Literature.
At the CBLDF: Fun Home Victory in New Jersey! “Alison Bechdel’s critically acclaimed memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic will remain in the English curriculum at Watchung Hills Regional High School in New Jersey. The school board voted to keep the graphic novel 7 – 2, despite the calls for its removal by the community. Instead, the curriculum has been expanded to make Fun Home one of three choices for the students to pick in the LGBTQIA literature unit. The other two works are We Are Okay by Nina LaCour and Speak No Evil by Uzodinma Iweala.“
