In 2020, OPL encourages readers to read diverse books written by diverse creators. Created via Twitter by author Corinne Duyvis in 2015, the hashtag #OwnVoices indicates a work of fiction whose protagonist and author share a marginalized identity. "Own voices" describes a book, not a person. By definition, writing about a character who shares your identity makes the story "own voices." Fiction is often best represented by someone who has experienced facets of the story in their real life. For more details on the reading challenge go to omahalibrary.org/2020-reading-challenge.
