"We were thrilled with the variety of wonderful productions this year.” said Chair Dawn Rutherford. "The narrators were such total wizards, they evoked everything from hysterical laughter to nausea, and we believe followers of the list will be similarly moved". Female Protagonists in Multicultural Young Adult ... Female Protagonists in Multicultural Young Adult Literature: Sources and Strategies Judith Hayn and Deborah Sherrill In today's classrooms the teaching of multicultural literature featuring female protagonists is vital. The reasons are two-fold: teachers should not only emphasize the commonalties between all people from diverse backgrounds, but also bring females to the forefront of the study of literature because the texts studied have typically featured only males in multicultural settings and/or with differing ethnic roots. Classrooms where the traditional classics dominate seldom give students of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to read about those like themselves. In addition, the American and British literature focus of the standard junior and senior (English III and IV) high school curriculum content rarely offers a female as writer or heroine. The canon may now include works by ethnic writers, but they are most often male such as James Baldwin or Richard Wright.

Closing the Diversity Gap in Young Adult Literature From the Harry Potter series to the Hunger Games trilogy, fiction geared to the tween and teen sets can regularly be found at the top of best-seller lists. But no amount of reimagining of Hermione Granger as black can erase the reality that youths of color rarely see themselves represented as the main characters of young adult novels—even though they’re the fastest-growing demographic group in the United States. The diversity of the authors writing young adult literature isn’t much better.
