On this panel, strong and influential voices within the literary world will discuss the necessity of analyzing and documenting the make-up of the workforce, the importance of balanced and equal representation in book reviews, as well as the critical need for books to be written by diverse authors with a plurality of narratives to help promote literacy and social justice.
