Cynsational Return: Fall 2020

By Cynthia Leitich Smith

Welcome back to Cynsations!

Since 2004, our philosophy has been to be upbeat and useful, offering information and inspiration to the children’s-YA literature community while raising up new voices, innovators, guiding lights, and those whose identities are underrepresented in the conversation of books.

Our emphasis is on thoughtful dialogue with substantive takeaways for readers, writers, and the champions—teachers, librarians and booksellers—who share books with kids. In that pursuit, we center children’s-YA writers and their creative journeys while embracing related perspectives.

Over this academic year, we look forward to highlighting insights and strategies that will speak to your needs.

Thanks so much for joining us! We’re hopeful that you’ll find Cynsations a source of rejuvenation.
