Amelia Bloomer Loves Princeless!
Just about a week ago, I was telling Chuck about the Amelia Bloomer list. What’s the Amelia Bloomer list, you ask? It’s an American Library Association-related committee that releases a list of books with positive female content for young readers (0-18). In other words, good books with positive female role models and messages. So imagine how psyched I was when I saw an e-mail, forwarded from Chuck, announcing that Action Labs’ Princeless – a title Chuck has championed here, time and again – made the list!
Read the low-down, straight from Action Labs:
Project list adds Action Lab’s flagship title for top honor
Princeless is no stranger to accolades and we at Action Lab Entertainment, the comic book industry’s most exciting and innovative new publisher, are proud to add one more feather to our already impressive cap.
The Amelia Bloomer Project has Jeremy Whitley’s Princeless to be honored this year on the Amelia Bloomer Project List. Each year, the Amelia Bloomer Project List selects the best books with significant feminist content that will appeal to young readers from birth to 18 years old, published in the previous 18 months.
The Amelia Bloomer Project is part of the American Library Association, Social Responsibilities Round Table’s (SRRT) Feminist Task Force (FTF).
We create an annual booklist of the best feminist books for young readers, ages birth through 18.
