Diversity in YA Tour!

Have you heard of Diversity in YA Fiction? It's "a website and book tour founded by two young adult authors, Malinda Lo and Cindy Pon, to celebrate diverse stories in YA" (from Malinda and Cindy are two of the loveliest authors I've gotten to know over the years. They have loads of talent and vision between the two of them. And this May, they're bringing Diversity in YA to a nationwide tour!
