How Children's Publishers are Addressing the Need for More Diverse Books
(And what we are looking for from new writers and illustrators!)

Leaders in the field of diverse publishing discuss their efforts to increase equity and inclusivity in books and authorship, and provide tips and guidance for aspiring children's picture book creators.  Panelists include Namrata Tripathi, Daniel Nayeri, Cheryl Willis Hudson, and Wade Hudson.  The panel discussion will be followed by a brief announcement of the Storymakers Awards for Writing & Illustration, and a mingling and dessert session with special guests.
