Children's Authors on Darfur

The various media outlets have reported that JK Rowling joined a number of "other children's authors" to issue an open letter to politicians calling for an end to the war in Darfur.

It is time to change the narrative. It is time to tell a different story. This April many children in Darfur will be reaching their fifth birthdays without ever having known peace. The world needs to wake up.

The other authors include Judy Blume, Cornelia Funke, RL Stine, Mike Berenstain, Louis Sachar. Did I mention Judy Blume?
