When I looked up Lee Francis, the author of this month's non-fiction recommended read, Native Time: A Historical Time Line of Native America, I discovered NativeWiki. In their own words:
NativeWiki is a free, open-to-the-public library of information about indigenous nations and peoples (past and present) of the world. We feature major sections on Nations and Peoples, Documents and Materials, Geographic Regions and a Picture Gallery of selected images. Begun in April, 2007, we currently have 1,309 content pages, 1,177 media files, and 2,305 registered contributors. Watch and help us grow!

readergirlz is a literacy and social media project for teens, awarded the National Book Foundation's Innovations in Reading Prize. The rgz blog serves as a depot for news and YA reviews from industry professionals and teens. As volunteers return full force to their own YA writing, the organization continues to hold one initiative a year to impact teen literacy. All are welcome to "like" us on Facebook!
