YPG Diversity Panel: Sensitivity Readers

Readers embrace books that include characters of all different races, ethnicities, religions, genders, and sexual orientations. But by including characters with such varying backgrounds, writers are tasked with writing about people whose life experiences they may not share. How, then, are they to make sure that their characters’ portrayals are realistic and sympathetic and not laced with misconceptions, biases, and other potentially harmful stereotypes?

Join YPG on Wednesday, December 6th at 6:00 pm for an important discussion about sensitivity readers! Hear from industry experts about what a sensitivity reader does, how they do it, why their role in the editorial process is crucial, what’s at stake if this step is missed, and more!

Panelists include:

  • Namrata Tripathi, Associate Publisher and Editorial Director, Dial Books for Young Readers
  • Phoebe Yeh, VP & Publisher, Crown Books for Young Readers (Moderator)
  • Additional panelists TK!


When: Wednesday, December 7th at 6:00 pm
