Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters

Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 

Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”

I AM AMAZED…tree of 40 fruits!

mymodernmet:

Imagine a tree that produces not just one type of fruit, but a whole variety of them! Artist Sam Van Aken has brought that vision to life with the Tree of 40 Fruit, an ongoing series of hybridized fruit trees that grow over 40 types of stone fruit, including cherries, plums, peaces, nectarines, apricots, and almonds.

Van Aken created these unique trees through the process of grafting—taking a sliver off a fruit tree and inserting it into an incision of another tree, then pruning it to encourage growth as a normal branch.
