Dear Beautiful Readers,
Let's think about diversity for our postcard writing topic this month! Who are the authors that you normally read? are they cis, white men? Maybe change that up this month! Tell us about your favorite authors who are BIPOC, women, LGBTQIA+, disabled, ethnic or religious minorities, and minorities of all kinds!

Here are a couple of web sites to find some great books.

* Banned Books Week: Frequently Challenged Books with Diverse Content

* We Need Diverse Books

And some great GR Listopias...

* Best Books Written by BIPOC Authors

* Social Justice: Books on Racism, Sexism, and Class

* Best Multicultural General Fiction

And again, if you have more to say than will fit on a postcard, feel free to fill up a notecard or write a letter! If you don't have the time or inclination, that's fine too.

A. Sign up by posting below.

B. Click on the person posting above you and send them a personal message with your mailing address.

C. When someone signs up below you, send a postcard to them.

D. Tell us when you've sent your postcard by EDITING your original post. You can also let us know when you've rcvd a postcard by editing your original post.

As Usual:

You will send one postcard and you will receive one postcard. The postcard can be store-bought or hand-made and can have any kind of picture on the front. We are an International group. Newbies are so very welcome!

Happy Reading,
