Diversity and Equity in Children's and Young Adult Literature

The Loft Podcast
Released on Feb 21, 2017

In this episode, Loft Podcast regulars Bao Phi and Kathryn Savage talk about diversity (or lack thereof) in children’s and young adult literature. To talk about this topic with Bao & Kathryn are two fantastic guests: YA author Shannon Gibney and professor and scholar of children's literature Sarah Park Dahlen. The group discussed everything from lack of representation to indie bookstores that support diverse books to the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign.
