Through the Window: Lee Wind


In celebration of Pride Month and as part of the Through the Window diversity exchange, our guest today is Lee Wind, author of Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill. Lee blogs at I'm Here, I'm Queer, What the Hell Do I Read? He is also the official blogger for SCBWI. We opened the window wide to interview each other about Jewish kidlit and LGBTQIA2+ kidlit.

Through the Window is a diversity exchange created by the Association of Jewish Libraries to fight antisemitism and other forms of bias through education and allyship. Jewish organizations swap content with other marginalized communities to give both groups a look through the window at our common humanity.

Another Through the Window partnership recently celebrated Pride Month with posts swapped by the Jewish Women's Archive and Yali Books: A Window to South Asia. See their posts here:
In this episode, we introduce a new podcast feature, Boosting Black Voices. I've already got interviews recorded for months to come, and most of my guests are white. I'll be asking those guests to add their suggestions for black-authored works, so that we can use our privilege constructively to boost black voices. Here are today's suggestions.
