Multicultural Voices in Young Adult Literature (due late 08; book)

Chelsea House, a New York publisher of reference works for schools and
libraries, is seeking authors to write five critical guides: African
American Writers, Latino Writers, Asian American Writers, Native American
Writers, and Arab American and Muslim Writers. Each title will profile, in
approximately 40,000 to 50,000 words, eight to ten prominent contemporary
figures (subject to approval) and two to four of their major works each.
The ideal authors will have taught or have familiarity with the
multicultural YA/adult literature and writers assigned in high and middle
schools today and have experience producing school-and-library titles
targeting this readership. If qualified and interested, please send a
cover letter and cv, preferably via e-mail, to:
