For some presses, Alazar Press included, Black history month is a year-long celebration. We do look forward to February as it gives us an opportunity to put special focus on our social media activity to celebrate authors and illustrators for many of our books. These exceptional writers and illustrators have interesting lives full of books and art and activities in their communities and around the world.
We are so appreciative for the focus that has been given to The Women Who Caught The Babies by Eloise Greenfield illustrated by Daniel Minter on the many “Best of 2019” lists.
Here is a small sample–
— Center for the Study of Multicultural Children’s Literature – Selected by the Center for the Study of Multicultural Children’s Literature Best Books of 2019
