Diversity and inclusivity in publishing has become more of a focus over the past few years, helped by the #OwnVoices movement and a growing need for all readers to be able to see themselves in books.
This is especially important in children’s and young adult fiction as highlighted by the Knights Of campaign #BooksThatMatter
In addition to publishers like Knights Of, here in Australia we have Magabala Books who promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers and illustrators. Other major publishers including New South Books, Walker Books, and Simon & Schuster, have been publishing more diverse titles – authored by both Australians and international writers.
We have collated a list of Culturally Diverse and Inclusive Junior titles for you on JBO
