LEE & LOW BOOKS took a look at the 2012 NYT Bestsellers and discovered some startling facts about the lack of diversity:
• Only three out of the 124 authors who appeared on the list during 2012 are people of color
• No African American authors made the Top 10 Bestsellers list that we looked at in 2012
• Of the three books/book series by authors of color that made the list, only one contains a main character of color
What can we do to increase diversity in books?
