Recap of March 2019 Event: “Diverse Representations in Children’s Literature”

Our March luncheon featured keynote speaker Namrata Tripathi, Vice President and Publisher of Penguin’s Kokila (pronounced KO-ki-la) imprint. Throughout her lively presentation, Namrata took us through her journey to create a publishing space that builds an inclusive community, while allowing storytellers to explore their full range of experiences — affecting the way children and young adults see the world and their place in it. Namrata discussed the questions she was asked as she started the imprint, her own experiences in publishing, and how the culture of publishing itself can be a barrier to inclusivity, as well as what she hopes to do to help change that.
