Lee Byrd, Owner and Publisher, Cinco Puntos Press
Everyone agrees that more diversity in children’s books is a good idea. BUT…why doesn’t the number of books by and about people of color ever increase?
Join two independent publishers (both with more than two decades of multicultural publishing under their belts) for a frank conversation about:
- The ongoing problems facing multicultural books
- How librarians and publishers can work together to create lasting change
- Upcoming books that you will want on your shelves
Special guest, Printz Award Honoree, Pura Belpré winner, and PEN/Faulkner Prize winner BENJAMIN ALIRE SAENZ, will share his insights on diversity.
