Four books coming soon

These four books are in progress and coming along quickly:

The Stories I Read to the Children: The Life and Writing of Pura Belpré, the Legendary Storyteller, Children’s Author, and New York Public Librarian, edited by Lisa Sánchez González.

The Politics of Professionalism: A Retro-Progressive Proposal for Librarianship, by Juris Dilevko

Critical Library Instruction: Theories and Methods, edited by Emily Drabinski, Alana Kumbier, and Maria Accardi

Rebel Literacy: Cuba’s National Literacy Campaign and Critical Global Citizenship, by Mark Abendroth


  1. As an instruction librarian, I am certainly looking forward to the one on critical library instruction. However, these titles all look very good. Best, and keep on blogging.

  2. I was disappointed the latest issue of AL didn’t feature your blog in its “Best Blogs for Keeping Up”, but maybe library “movers and shakers” at AL haven’t looked at Library Juice since the “Blogger song” and still think you’re “Not a Blogger”. I certainly subscribe to this blog via RSS (live bookmarks in Firefox, to be exact).

  3. Thanks, John. It seems to me that ALA an AL are feeling a certain pressure to be “with it,” and liking what I’m doing doesn’t really fit into that.
