Nancy D. Tolson says - "I am asking my FB family to make Book Selfies. To promote the true visibility of diverse books across this country let us all take a selfie with one of our favorite books written (and if it is a children’s picture book - illustrated) by a person of color. Please give the title of the book, author, (and illustrator) and copyright date on your WNDB selfie. I would like to collect all of these photos and place them on We Need Diverse Books Selfie Pinterest page. My goal is 200 by December 31st. Please join me. Make solo selfies, friend selfies, or family selfies. But please make one.‪#‎WeNeedDiverseBooks‬
