by We Need Diverse Books

September 21, 2015 (Washington, DC) – We Need Diverse Books (WNDB) will postpone its 2016 diversity festival.

“We’ve decided to extend the event planning window so we can focus on our current initiatives and infrastructure,” says Ellen Oh, President of We Need Diverse Books. “With programs like internships and mentorships for aspiring publishing professionals and authors, WNDB in the Classroom, and The Walter Award in full swing, taking additional time will ensure we get the festival we all envision.”

 

Originally slated for July 23rd, 2016, the non-profit organization’s first annual festival will now debut in either 2017 or 2018.
