Abstract

At the 2017 IASL Annual Conference, the Children’s and Young Adult Literature Special Interest Group (CYAL SIG) discussed the creation of “Authentic Voices,” a curated list of titles, authors, illustrators, and publishers identified by IASL members as sharing authentic voices from indigenous peoples around the world. “Authentic Voices” is envisioned to be a mirror for readers from these groups, a window for readers outside of these cultures, and a sliding glass door to promote engagement with all (Sims Bishop, 1990). This paper describes the need for such a list, important diversity movements and trends in children’s and young adult literature including #weneeddiversebooks and #ownvoices, and some exemplars to be included on the list.
