“Someday we will become something we haven’t even yet imagined.” ―Yuyi Morales, Dreamers
For our first 5 years, we worked as volunteers to quietly catalog what we imagined was a new emerging cultural genre—New Arrival and New Generation children’s literature.
For our second 5 years, we were driven to act and expand our work by the 2017 Muslim Ban and other racist aggression towards immigrants. I’m Your Neighbor Books imagined new ways to engage readers in conversations about immigration, welcoming, and belonging including the Welcoming Library, our Welcoming Genre, Rapid Response Book Boxes, the Book Awards …and more!
What can you and I’m Your Neighbor Books imagine for the next decade?
