Contributors to the Special Issue on Puerto Rico

Good news— the .pdf of our special bilingual issue on Puerto Rico is now available for purchase here.

Guest edited by Boston-based librarian and Association for Library Service to Children (USA) Board member Sujei Lugo Vásquez (herself Puerto Rican), the Puerto Rico Issue is dynamic and our longest (128 pages lovingly designed in full color) to date. With its focus on post-Hurricane Maria literacy, storytelling, library and publication projects that are connecting children and youth to Puerto Rican children's literature and Puerto Rican history, the issue both clarifies and problematizes the current social and political climate in Puerto Rico, which is grappling with a plummeting economy while renewing its push for statehood.

Contributors to the issue include Puerto Rican professors, librarians, primary/secondary school teachers, storytellers, and children's authors/illustrators, and we wanted to take a moment to share their faces.
