Laura Atkins recently gave a paper, “What’s the Story? Reflections on White Privilege in the Publication of Children’s Books,” at the IRSCL (International Research Society for Children’s Literature) congress. She’s calling for comments and suggestions from people involved with children’s publishing.
Please don’t go over there to deny that white privilege exists because a) that’s simply not true and b) you’ll be derailing what’s already turning into a very useful conversation. Thank you.
