NYC Metro Chapter: Diversity in Publishing
Diversity in publishing is not a trend: it’s our present and future as an industry. How can we respond and prepare? Join Hannah Ehrlich, Director of Marketing and Publicity at multicultural children’s book publisher Lee & Low Books, for a look at the current landscape, activism efforts, and challenges. What can the statistics teach us? What will make a meaningful impact on the numbers? And how can publishing professionals support diversity at every stage of book creation?
Hannah Ehrlich is the Director of Marketing and Publicity at Lee & Low Books. She has a decade of experience marketing and publicizing diverse children’s books at Lee & Low, where she oversees the company’s publicity and marketing initiatives, social media strategy, and web sales. Hannah was one of the planners behind Lee & Low’s landmark Diversity Baseline Survey, the first study to examine staff diversity within the publishing industry, and helped to establish Lee & Low’s Diversity in Publishing Summer Internship. She originally served as a Publisher Liaison for the We Need Diverse Books campaign, and speaks regularly about diversity in children’s publishing.
