ALA Midwinter – Diverse Debuts Panel
January 31, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This ALA Midwinter event will be a panel discussion by members of We Need Diverse Books™ and authors from the Diversity League, a group of 2015 debut authors committed to diversifying library shelves, one book at a time. The panel will be moderated by Danielle Paige, NYT-bestselling author of DOROTHY MUST DIE. After a discussion on how panelists’ books add to the diversity of children’s literature, the signing session will be an informal “meet and greet” format. Librarians are encouraged to make personal connections with authors to learn more details about the panelists’ books, and how best to introduce these titles to library patrons in a way that emphasizes their universality.
