We Need Diverse Books is excited to announce the opening of the application period for its 2016 WNDB™ in the Classroom program in which schools can apply for boxes of free books. This year, two titles are available: the Walter Award winning and NYT bestseller young adult book ALL AMERICAN BOYS by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely or the middle grade anthology FLYING LESSONS, edited by Ellen Oh (a starred selection from Booklist, Kirkus & SLJ).
Educators and librarians will need to apply here for 36 copies of the book of their choice. The books can be used for any educational purpose in a classroom or school library, or given away to students. They may not be sold. Priority will be given to schools with 60% free or reduced price lunch eligibility. Only one box of books will be awarded per school.
A teacher’s guide will also be made available so educators can discuss the novel with their students. We’ll also choose one classroom to win a free Skype visit from the authors!
At this time, we are only able to ship books within the United States. Selected applicants will be notified early 2017.
