Biracial Readers and Choosing a Side, a guest post by Michael Mann

Choosing sides

I think biracial children, as readers, often have to choose a side.

When I was younger, the choice was limited – I had Indian mythology for my dad’s side, and everything else for my English side. Now the choice has improved hugely. From Nizrana Farook to Roshani Chokshi, I feel envious of the choice I would have had today.

There is still a way to go, of course, but I’m optimism that one day, whatever mix you are, you’ll be able to find at least one book for each side of your family.
