Anansesem's Caribbean Children's/YA Online Bookstore Launched

I'm pleased to share a project I’ve been working on for the past couple of months: Anansesem has just launched our new-and-improved Anansesem Online Bookstore, which can be found here. now has a monopoly on online book shopping worldwide and so we’ve chosen to partner with them through their Amazon Affiliate Program.

The Anansesem Online Bookstore is a carefully curated niche bookstore that marries the convenience and accessibility of with Anansesem’s trusted expertise in the Caribbean children's and young adult (YA) books marketplace. As editor-in-chief, I'm so accustomed to delegating, but the Anansesem Online Bookstore is my personal project and I think it's my favorite thing I've done in nine years of running the magazine.

The Anansesem Online Bookstore carries only ‘own voices’ books. These are high quality traditionally published children's and YA books, as well as self-published books of cultural interest. The bookstore carries books printed in Kreyòl, Spanish, French and English, many of which are bilingual books.

Read my recent guest post on The Brown Bookshelf website to learn more about the bookstore's offerings and the behind-the-scenes work that went into building it. And while you're on their website, check out their 28 Days Later Campaign which profiles the best new and unnoticed African-American children's and YA authors.
