Event Description

Diversity in publishing is more than a trend: it’s our present and future. How can publishers respond and prepare? Join Hannah Ehrlich, Director of Marketing and Publicity at multicultural children’s book publisher Lee & Low Books, for a look at the current landscape, activism efforts, and challenges. What can the statistics teach us? What will make a meaningful impact on the numbers? And how can publishers support diversity at every stage of book creation?
