This book may be set in a fictional land but it is definitely full of diverse characters
#DiverseRead 👩🏻👩🏼👩🏽👩🏾👩🏿👩🏻‍🦰 #ANewChapter 🥂

Question: Am I the only one who doesn‘t really pay attention to the description/ethnicity of the characters in the books I read? I tend to pay attention to the story, and actions & personalities of the characters not what they are supposed to look like.

#BookNerd 💙📚🤓

xicanti The thing is--and I promise I don't mean this in a nasty or condescending way--ethnicity is about more than what people look like. People have to navigate the world in different ways because the goal posts aren't in the same place for everyone, and that has a major impact on personality traits and peoples' actions. It's a complex issue for a short Litst comment, so I'd encourage you to look up "intersectionality." There's lots out there. 12mo
JuliaTheBookNerd @xicanti I‘ve never heard of intersectionality, I‘ll have to look into it 😊 12mo
Shaneyney I‘ve read a lot by Tad Williams. Not sure if I‘ve read this one or not. Is it part of a series? 12mo

rjsthumbelina So, I used to not notice. But what I have found is that if no descriptions are given (or at least noticed by me), then I default to picturing a white person. And I do find that problematic, at least for me - I make it a goal now to read books with diverse characters so that I make sure I am building as much empathy with characters that don't look like me as those that do. This book sounds really good! 12mo
BooksMcD @rjsthumbelina I don‘t think that‘s on you! The way authors write, the default race for their characters is usually their own. So if they‘re white they only offer a descriptor of race if the person isn‘t white. The default is white. AALANA authors tend to do the same thing and only offer description when the race is different from their own. Obvi I haven‘t read everyone, but reading AALANA might be the best way to gain or challenge perspective. 😊 12mo

hermyknee Omg! I love everything!!! So cute!!! 💖💖💖 12mo
mrsmarch I took the Pottermore quiz with my 5 year old and she sorted in to Ravenclaw — which if anyone had ever met Luna, would make COMPLETE sense. She‘s a bit “luny” too but a keen observer. 12mo
wanderinglynn Too adorable! ❤️ 12mo

julesG Love your mug, bookmark and Lunas. I'm a Ravenclaw myself, and my daughter is too. She's so proud of it, she doesn't want to use her Gryffindor rucksack anymore. 12mo
