DAILY REMINDERS & LINK-UP: Diversity & Dining With Authors

Welcome to Day 3 of Armchair Book Expo!!  We have two topics today, one that we hope creates a needed and open conversation, and one that is just plain fun.  Let's do this!!


Twitter Party @ 2 PM EST:  Favorite Authors


Delving Into Diversity: Book Expo sparked quite the controversy a couple years ago regarding diversity in books and authors. Where are we now? OR, let's take a different direction and explore the diversity of the format of a book. Do we judge a book by its cover and/or content (e.g.,, audio, digital, graphic, etc.)? Or, combine the two topics and discuss diversity found in alternative content (e.g., representation in graphic novels). Get creative and maybe even controversial! 

Dining With the Authors: Every year at Book Expo, children and adult authors are featured during breakfast. Who would you dream of enjoying a meal with? Would it be breakfast, lunch, dinner, or simply coffee? What would your meal be? What would you discuss?

  1. Having so much fun with the topics, but today's was a toughie for me!

    Terri @ Alexia's Books and Such

    1. Same here! My post today is a little short.

  2. I do judge books by their covers. I am a cover snob.

    Covers pull me in. :)

    1. OMGG me too!! We're not "supposed to" but if a cover doesn't grab me, I probably won't read it.

  3. I love today's topics. I had a hard time with the ones yesterday.

  4. Dining with the Authors is up at Bibliophile's Retreat can't wait to check out some of the other posts and maybe the Twitter Party tomorrow
