Friday, April 10, 2015

F228 Bravery and Bearing Witness: The Power of Vulnerability in Nonfiction
Room L100 J, Lower Level

S146 Why Reviewing Matters: Diversity in Reviews
Room 200 H&I, Level 2
Saturday, April 11, 2015
10:30 am to 11:45 am
The VIDA count continues to show gender disparity in book reviewers and authors reviewed. This panel of book review editors and reviewers will discuss their efforts and offer practical strategies to combat this gender gap and lack of diversity by examining title and reviewer selection as well as when, where, and how reviews are published.
Reviews Editor Camille-Yvette Welsch is on the Panel.

Also, Managing Editor Karna Converse will be at the conference on April 9 and 10. She'd be pleased to catch up with and get to know contributors, or potential contributors!
