The oldest secular and one of the most influential newspapers in Turkey, Cumhuriyet (“The Republic”) was founded by journalist Yunus Nadi Abalıoğlu at the initiative of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on 7 May 1924 and published continuously since its first edition.

Earlier this year the kid lit industry suffered the loss of Floyd Cooper.  Floyd Cooper explored the African-American experience through the lens of history. Through his work he hoped to recount pieces of history that were either not taught or barely taught.    He certainly achieved that with his most recent work -  Unspeakable : the Tulsa Race Massacre.  He also created affirmative  illustrations in books like The Blacker the Berry, a 2009 Coretta Scott King illustrator award winner.
