Separate, Not Equal: And It’s Complicated! Book Covers with Coe Booth

Check out Coe Booth’s blog post about book covers and placement of books at: CBC Diversity: Separate, Not Equal.

On her own blog post, On Being Labeled, she writes:

i really hope that by writing about this, librarians and booksellers will rethink the ways in which they choose to shelve books.

because, while i think having “special” shelves for so-called “urban” novels might help fans find particular books, they also ghettoize books and remove them from the mainstream shelves.
