Will Your YA Be Read in Braille?

Corey Doctorow posts here about his own YA novel, Little Brother, being published under a Creative Commons License, which allowed Patti Smith, a teacher of visually impaired kids in Detroit, to download the book version and convert it to Braille for her young readers.

As Corey points out, it's legal to convert any book to Braille or audio book for blind readers, though much easier to do with e-text.

Now Corey is encouraging other YA writers to get their books into the hands of kids hungry for great books!

To read the article and Patti's letter, and to find out how your book can become part of the library for her students, check out the link!
