Harriette Robinet and stories for children
One of our boosters over the years is Harriette Robinet, and I thought I would take a few lines to remark that her short novels- stories for young readers and high school students- mostly following experiences of African-American children in various historical settings- are great books to use in the classroom and also as 'books of the month' for libraries in Africa. We've sent a bunch of copies over to the libraries in Ghana, and I've asked to librarians to write back about the experiences of readers with the books. Should be interesting!
