I thought some of you might be interested in the following resources for Piecing Me Together, by Renée Watson, which was awarded a Coretta Scott King Award and Newbery Honor Award at ALA’s youth media awards yesterday. As most of you know Renée Watson grew up in Portland, OR, and Piecing Me Together takes place there.—Katie

Hello Mighty ALSC,

I was so moved by the winners at the YMA yesterday.  I was especially pleased about the recognition of Renée Watson’s PIECING ME TOGETHER (Bloomsbury) - a novel I read and reread last year.

Renée Watson, Anne Sibley O’Brien, and I created an extensive guide to explore the book with readers.  The guide not only has discussion questions and hands-on project ideas, but resources and talking points to help you prepare yourself to talk about race, gender, class, body type, and how they all can intersect in the character Jade (and in the lives of your readers.)
