It’s Day 2 of the #SupportWNDB IndieGogo campaign, and we’re about to hit 25% of our funding goal. It’s the SECOND DAY. Four $1,000 donations have been made to fund the Walter Dean Myers Award and Grants. Three hundred and twelve funders have driven a stake into the ground and run up the #WeNeedDiverseBooks flag. For an extraordinary hour this morning, a fabulous agent who we all know as Literaticat matched every single donation that was made. Mr. Camp Half-Blood himself, Rick Riordan, stepped up to the plate and hit a scorching line drive over the centerfield fence. The generosity and commitment shown by this community has been stunning, overwhelming, and utterly glorious. I have never been prouder to be a member of the children’s literature community than I am today.
