Looking to expand your collection of authentic diverse children’s books? Lee & Low is excited to be participating in a free live webinar tomorrow on #OwnVoices books, hosted by School Library Journal!
Join Shelley Diaz, School Library Journal‘s reviews manager, for an in-depth conversation with editors and publishing insiders, Francisca Goldsmith of Diamond Book Distributors, Christopher Johns of Tuttle Publishing, Cheryl Klein of Lee & Low and Carrie Gleason of James Lorimer & Company.
