The A More Diverse Universe reading event ended this past Saturday, and I'm so thrilled with the participation! We had a nice, round 80 posts about books featuring such a wide array of characters and settings and plots. I know I added many books to my reading list, and I hope you did, too!
I hope that the A More Diverse Universe event inspired you to seek out diverse authors and read more widely than you did before. I particularly hope that, if this was the first time you really looked at your reading list and considered how diverse it is or is not, you will keep that thought in your mind and change the way you approach your reading. We all vote with our money and with our time, and if we spend our money and our time seeking out the libraries and bookstores and bookshelves that we want, then that is what we will see in the future. The world is in no way perfect; by reminding ourselves to see how other people experience life, we can all be more understanding and empathetic world citizens.
Thank you again, so very much, for participating in the event.
