Our campaign has exceeded our wildest expectations, and we owe it all to you. We couldn’t possibly express too much appreciation.
What’s so exciting to us is the broad range of donors to our campaign: They span the whole publishing world and include readers, authors, literary agents, editors, publishers, booksellers, librarians and of course, readers.
Tomorrow at 10am EST, WNDB will formally release a full-length video in which NYT-bestselling author John Green (TheFault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska) discusses why diverse books are necessary. But we’d like to offer you a sneak peak of John’s video as a thank you for being on our mailing list: Click HERE to view.
The WNDB team will be discussing the video in a Twitter chat on Tuesday, October 28th at 1pm EST, using the hashtag #SupportWNDB. Please join us!
Finally, we have some great new perks!
