We at Third Place Books are committed to fighting systemic racism. Today we want to share one of our efforts to hold the publishing industry accountable in this fight as well.
It's getting tough out there, or in there. While being stuck at home, it seems like we're busier than ever. Working. Baking bread. Watching all of Ozark. Zoom happy hours. Training our dogs to jump over stacked rows of toliet paper.
And then there are those of you with bored kids and cats on your hands. Kids can't go to school. Cats can't go outside. And you don't want to overload them on screen time. Plus cats don't really use phones.
Rene, the head of the Third Place Books Kids Department, can talk you into reading just about anything. She has an affinity for books by Oge Mora and Brandy Colbert. Rene is a proud member of a family enthusiastic about playing games, hiking and snorkeling in Hawaii, and cooking together.
