Albertsons Library Librarian/Assistant Professor Kelsey Keyes served as a member of the 2017 selection committee for the Amelia Bloomer Project, which announced the 2018 Amelia Bloomer Top Ten List at ALA’s Midwinter Meeting and Exhibits in Denver, held February 8-13, 2018. The list is available at the Amelia Bloomer Project blog https://ameliabloomer.wordpress.com/2018/02/12/2018-top-ten/
Named for Amelia Bloomer, a pioneering 19th century newspaper editor, feminist thinker, public speaker and suffragist, the list features books about girls and women that spur the imagination while confronting traditional female stereotypes.
The bibliography consists of notable books with significant feminist content, intended for young readers from birth to 18 years old. This year’s list includes 56 titles published between July 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2017. The complete annotated list can be found at: https://ameliabloomer.wordpress.com/.
Kelsey was named Co-chair of the Committee for 2018-2019.
