The Morning in Publishing: January 3, 2017

Nnedi Okorafor recently shared the covers for the paperback edition of her novel Akata Witch as well as the forthcoming Akata Warrior, both created by Greg Ruth. The two have collaborated before, as Ruth illustrated the covers for the German editions of some of Okorafor’s novels. However, the Akata books provided a particular challenge, as he explains in a Muddy Colors blog post about race and artistic growth.

We’re back with the morning in publishing, from helping kids expand their reading comfort zones to lessons on social media for aspiring authors and agents alike.
