November 7, 2015 (New York, New York) – We Need Diverse Books received an unexpected donation from Emily Jenkins that will be applied, in its entirety, to fund the WNDB publishing internship program.
Linda Sue Park, honorary chair of the We Need Diverse Books Internship Committee, stated, “We’re excited about being able to expand the program because of this donation. From our inaugural group of five interns, one is already a full-time employee. This program is having both immediate and long-term effects, and the donation will enhance those effects.”
WNDB thanks Ms. Jenkins for her continued support: http://www.nytimes.
