#OwnVoices Literature

"Books erase bias, they make the uncommon every day, and the mundane exotic. A book makes all cultures universal."

~Grace Lin

A selection of literature about diverse characters written by authors from that same diverse group. #OwnVoices is a term coined by the writer Corinne Duyvis, and refers to an author from a marginalized or under-represented group writing about their own experiences or from their own perspective, rather than someone from an outside perspective writing as a character from an underrepresented group.
