Title Alert: IntersectionAllies, paperback edition

Just dropped in for February 2022, a paperback edition of IntersectionAllies by Chelsea Johnson, LaToya Council, and Carolyn Choi. The hardcover of this tile has done phenomenally well, and Indie bookstores, teachers, and schools have loved this title.

The book has been featured on Huffpost’s recommended “Anti-Racist Books for Kids and Teens” and Keys Soulcare’s “5 Stunning Visual Books for All Ages,” as well as having a starred review in SLJ. It is listed in the new Consortium spring 2022 catalogue, but the book is dropping so quickly I want to call it out! Perfect for teachers and parents.
