Field Trip Friday: September 23, 2016

Welcome to this week's Field Trip Friday! Here are your links:

- A great post on how being a bookseller helps with writing.

- How morality changes in foreign languages.

- Malinda Lo's beginner's guide to researching a diverse SFF novel.

- Our lovely Kate Hart interviewed our equally lovely Amy Lukavics for her Badass Ladies You Should Know series.

- An article on speaking out about diversity in publishing.

- Gene Luen Yang got a McArthur genius grant.

- There has been some discussion this week on twitter about a microaggression in VOYA's review of RUN by Kody Keplinger, a friend and former YA Highwayer. Here is a statement by Teen Librarian Toolbox about it, and here's a tweet by Kody herself that I particularly loved. There is a lot more conversation around this, but too much for me to link it all.
