Introducing Own Voices as an appeal term in NoveList
Big news, folks! Own voices is now a searchable appeal term in NoveList. Own voices would be the perfect complement to our existing diversity appeals that call out books for all ages featuring culturally diverse, LGBTQIA diverse, religiously diverse, or ability diverse characters. By focusing on aspects of the author's identity as well as the identity of their characters, we hope to provide a more precise access point for these kinds of stories.
