The C.O.R.A.* Diversity Roll Call will alternate between Color Online and Worducopia each week, with a question that explores and celebrates diversity in literature. Different weeks may focus on racial diversity, ethnicity, abilities, sexual identity, social class, and so on. No need to officially sign up--join in each week as you wish. Starting now with these two questions:
Think about all the books you've read--and I'm guessing that's a pretty high number so this may be tricky!
- Which is the character who's the most different from you? (And how? Use this as an excuse to tell us your own background and anything else about yourself that's important to your self-identity).
- Which is the author (this could be fiction, nonfiction, poetry, etc.) who is (or was) the most different from you?
