Event description

Description

Diversity in publishing is not a trend: it’s our present and future as an industry. How can we 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 publishing professionals support diversity at every stage of book creation?
