CBC Diversity Event

I was honored to be asked to be a part of the CBC "Speed Dating" Diversity event at Simmons on May 14th. Met a lot of good people and many good discussions began. We can only move forward!

There is a new blossom of diversity awareness recently – appearing on tumblr, and on twitter, and Grace Lin, Walter Dean Myers, Zetta Elliot and interviews here. Controversy over lack of representation at BEA, and most recently, a new article on 10 YA books adults must read only consisted of white characters.
