Summary
"This richly illustrated and vastly inclusive collection uplifts the works of authors who are often underrepresented in the literary world. Using their keen knowledge and deep love for all things literary, coauthors Jamise Harper (founder of the Diverse Spines book community) and Jane Mount (author of Bibliophile) collaborated to create an essential volume filled with treasures for every reader"-- Provided by publisher.
This richly illustrated and vastly inclusive collection uplifts the works of authors who are often underrepresented in the literary world. Harper and Mount celebrate authors, illustrators, designers, store owners, and others to help you find diverse books by authors of backgrounds different from your own. They highlight Black, Indigenous, and people of colors, most of whom have been marginalized by a dominant white society. By leaving your comfort zone you will immerse yourself in new worlds-- and perhaps make your own world a little larger. -- adapted from back cover and Introduction
