Indian reads this June

Hello everyone, June begins here in New Zealand with a chilly blast through the front doors of the library I work in. Yes, winter has arrived!! My theme for this month however has nothing to do with the weather; I’m just fascinated by it!! For my posts this month I wanted to give a friendly salute to the culture of India and introduce the trending diverse stories that seem to be crowding into children’s literature.

Indian culture was a permanent presence in my younger years living in Sri Lanka and my adoration and respect for all things Indian continue to today. This month’s tween titles are all written by Indian authors about young Indian protagonists. I have included a teen book and an adult biography this month.

Enjoy your reading!!
