If you couldn’t make the panel, you can listen to the FULL unedited audio here.
At BookCon, #WNDB founder Ellen Oh revealed that the campaign is far from over. In addition to a #WeNeedDiverseBooks diversity festival to be held in Washington, DC in 2016, we have some exciting new partnerships:
A partnership with the National Education Association’s Read Across America to promote diverse books and authors.
We’ll also be joining with the amazing First Book program to bring diverse authors directly into schools with a Diversity in the Classroom initiative
During the panel, Grace Lin passed out a terrific "cheat sheet" for how to sell diverse books, with specific examples based on recommendations from our team. Please check it out at her blog here, and GO FORTH AND HANDSELL!!
