#KidLitForMasks - Add YOUR Selfie to Spread Awareness that #MasksSaveLives

It's all over social media. There's a Publishers Weekly article explaining how it started, with Margaret Peterson Haddix wanting to do something positive and constructive. Margaret wrote in a Facebook post to launch the movement, “it’s time for authors to use their clout and influence again en masse to encourage mask-wearing to stop the spread of coronavirus.”

Here's Margaret's launch image of herself wearing a mask:

#KidLitForMasks and #MasksSaveLives
Author Bryan Patrick Avery word-plays off the title of his book "Super Puzzletastic Mysteries," writing "It's no mystery, masks save lives. Please wear one."

"Ninjas are cool. Ninjas wear masks. Be Ninja cool. Wear a Mask." Charlene Chua illustrates it for us!

Author Karol Ruth Silverstein put little masks on every pain-scale face on her cover but one - the one for her main character, Ricky, in her award-winning debut novel "Cursed".
