I believe in diversity in libraries, in churches, in schools, in life. I believe that we need more diversity in publishing and in books, in movies, on TV. I support #WeNeedDiverseBooks.
So I was over the moon to see that Reading Wishes and Rather Be Reading are having a Dive Into Diversity Reading Challenge for 2015.
What: Read and review diverse books in 2015. The number is completely up to you, but the more the better.
As for what counts as diverse, we like this definition taken from the We Need Diverse Books tumblr: “We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”
When: January 1 – December 31, 2015
