Mirrors and Windows Diversity Initiative
The Children's Alliance of the Northern California Independent Booksellers' Association has chosen ONE WORD FROM SOPHIA for a hand selling competition with the New England Indie Booksellers. The goal is to prove to publishers that they CAN sell books featuring "diverse" characters by tracking the sales of chosen titles. The initiative runs from October 1 to December 31. As the author I am supporting the campaign in these ways:
