Coming Soon: “Calling the Moon: 16 Period Stories from BIPOC Authors”

“Calling the Moon: 16 Period Stories from BIPOC Authors” is a collection of coming-of-age poems and short fictional stories by authors of color. Recommended for ages 10-13, topics cover menstruation, of course, but also identity, belonging, grief, family and friendships. Says one review, “This is a memorable anthology featuring uniformly strong entries from broadly diverse voices that delve into the subject matter in ways ideally suited to the target audience.”

Pakistani American author Saadia Faruqi, of the Yasmin and Marya Khan book series, is one contributor. Faruqi is also the editor-in-chief of Blue Minaret, a literary journal dedicated to Muslim writers and artists.
