John F. Blair, Publisher kicks off 2015 with our own #DiverseBooks resolution
In 2014, we celebrated our 60th anniversary as a publisher. That’s a big accomplishment, and it no doubt means we’ve seen just about everything. One of the greatest things about being around for so long is our large and expanding catalog; these great books published by Blair and our distributed lines are a constant in an industry that seems to be changing all the time.
This New Year’s, readers on social media called for more diverse books. What started as a hashtag (#WeNeedDiverseBooks) is now an official campaign to strive toward books for children that include diverse characters, are written by all kinds of authors, and are illustrated by unique artists. That’s a great call to action by readers, and we’re hoping this takes root in 2015 just like #ReadWomen2014 did last year.
Here at Blair, we’ve been publishing books by a diverse group of authors and about various topics since the beginning, and we’re very proud to continue that tradition in 2015. Read more about our resolution here.
