More Than One: Intersectionality in Publishing

Track:
Muggle Studies Book Club (LeakyLit)
What:
Panel
When:
2:00 PM, Friday 9 Aug 2019 CDT (1 hour)
Where:

It's weird that we browse the aisles of a bookstore and find each book assigned to a single shelf. Sure, a story about a queer teenager fits in the "LGBT section," but when the protagonist is also a woman and a person of color and a person who uses a wheelchair? The book truly belongs in more than one place.

We'll be talking to authors about their own intersecting identities and those of their characters. How is the publishing industry coming around to the idea that no one fits into just one box?
