Last week BookExpo America or (BEA) was held in NYC. I've heard from a few people who attended this year and in the past that it's not a very diverse conference. Author and educator Zetta Elliott is trying to do something to change that.
Did you attend BookExpo America last week? Did you notice that stepping into the Javits Center was like leaving New York City—trading an incredibly diverse city for an astonishingly white world of publishing professionals? We can do something about that. I just sent an email to the Conference/Education Programming team (you can find their email addresses here). Do you know anyone else who can help us make this happen? If so, please email me or leave a comment and/or reach out to them yourself.
