How To Find (And Read) More Diverse Books 101.

/How To Find (And Read) More Diverse Books 101.

So. You want to stop listening to the (white, male) co-op space in the bookstore, and instead start looking for more diversity in your reading. Awesome! Except… where do you find out about these awesome new authors? Well, over at ladybusiness, Renay has a list.

Also, this quote:

We’ve reached a point where book lists, whether they’re recommendation lists, best of lists, upcoming lists, or even themed lists, should not be 100% white men. If a list has more than 70% white men on it that list is dubious no matter who it’s from. If there’s a list of recommendations without at least 30% women or people of color, seek other tastemakers immediately. Even lists of all women should be carefully examined because it’s probably going to have terrible racial intersections.
