Just didn’t get to this IMWAYR before the end of the night Sunday–my apologies!

(I did want to give you an update on my FAME conference though: it was so phenomenal to be back face to face with authors and colleagues, and I learned so much! It was rejuvenating.)

To see what I’ve been reading, check out my 2021 Goodreads Challenge page  or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


I read The 1619 Project: Born on the Water by Nikole Hannah-Jones and Renée Watson. This book is one of the most beautifully done picture books I’ve ever read. The writing is masterful and the illustrations took my breath away. If you haven’t read this important book, I recommend you pick it up today.



I am listening to With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I read it when it came out, but I wanted to hear Elizabeth Acevedo read the book aloud.


Tuesday: A Seat at the Table: The Nancy Pelosi Story by Elisa Boxer, Illustrated by Laure Freeman

  1. Kellee, I’m so glad to hear the FAME conference was valuable and energizing—that’s great!

    Ricki, your praise of Born on the Water made me go look for it on Libby, and my library actually has it, so I placed a hold on it! Supposedly, I should be able to read it in about 6 weeks. I’m looking forward to it, so thanks for the recommendation!

    Thank you both so much for the great post and link round-up!
