Katie Fitzgerald at Read-at-Home Mom plans to run an Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge next year. For her purposes, "old school" will be defined as books "published in the decade of your birth or before." The challenge will have a different focus each month.

What's my interest here? Do I have a nostalgic thing for nineteenth century improving juvenile fiction? Ah, noooo. But I do feel everyone should know about the history of their field. Writers are no different.

I don't plan to take part every month, but by following #oldschoolkidlit2017 on Twitter, I'll be able to benefit from the reading and reviewing of other participants. So that's happening next year.
