readergirlz July issue

rgz ad July 2009

This month, readergirlz goes graphic, with Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg’s awesome graphic novel, The Plain Janes and its sequel, Janes in Love. Our theme is creativity and the postergirlz gang has put together some amazing recommended titles about art and inspiration:

Fiction
The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher
A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell
Emiko Superstar by Mariko Tamaki and Steve Rolston
North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley
Same Difference by Siobhan Vivian

(The only one of the fiction titles I haven’t read yet is Siobhan Vivian’s book, which I have heard is tremendous. All of the others are beautiful reads, guaranteed to make you want to go all artsy).

Non-Fiction
Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith

The chat this month will be on July 22 at 6pm PST, 9pm EST at the readergirlz blog. Also, don’t miss your chance to contribute something uniquely artistic to our “Art Saves” project. Visit this link to see the template you can download and then all you do is create something that communicates the power of art to save and inspire. When you’re done, send your work to artsaves@slayground.net. We’ll get to enjoy these original works of art all month long at the blog. So get creative kids, and don’t forget to read both Janes books too. Love them.
