Hello, 2015! 

Happy New Year, everyone! We’ve got lots of exciting updates to share with you this month. But first…

Thank you for all of your support in 2014! From the We Need Diverse Books hashtag going viral on twitter, to our Indiegogo campaign, we couldn’t have done it without you!

January Updates: 

New advisory board members: We’re lucky to have an ever-expanding team, and would like to introduce our newest advisory board members, authors Linda Sue Park and Christopher Myers. We also welcome Meg Medina as the newest member of our executive team!

Panels & Conferences: WNDB will be represented at several conferences and panels in 2015. In the next six months, you can find us at:

If you or anyone you know has experience in event programming or fundraising, and would like to help out, we would love for you to volunteer to be on this committee! We invite you to fill out the volunteer form on our website, and send an e-mail expressing your interest to

Internship Program:
Our internships program, which will provide opportunities to those from diverse backgrounds with career goals in the publishing industry, will be headed by Linda Sue Park!
