AILA Rescinds Sherman Alexie’s 2008 YA Book of the Year Award: Critical Linking, March 23, 2018

Critical Linking is sponsored by The Vale by Brian D. Anderson.


In a bold move, the American Indian Literature Association (AILA) is rescinding Sherman Alexie’s 2008 YA Book of the Year Award “to send an unequivocal message that Alexie’s actions are unacceptable.”

WOW

Today, at the Public Library Association’s (PLA) 2018 conference, PLA announced a new partnership with community publisher Short Edition to promote reading and literary joy through public libraries in four U.S. communities. The joint project also will encourage diverse writers to share their work through Short Edition’s digital content platform while promoting library programs and services for readers and writers of all ages.

Readers can print one-, three-, or five-minute stories from a range of genres at the touch of a button via the Short Story Dispenser. The kiosks will be branded to the libraries, enabling them to further their reach and visibility, as well as connect each story back to the full power of their collections and programs.

The first launch will be at four libraries. But I’m wondering about the logistics of printing
