Equity, Justice, and Inclusion 2020 Community Read
In spring and summer 2020, the Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Committee of the Association of University Presses coordinated a "Community Read" — to bring us together to learn and discuss issues of vital importance to publishing, scholarship, and the world. We collected nominations of university press books for these community conversations: White Fragility (Beacon Press) and Invisible People (Temple UP) are the selected 2020 reads.
The committee has selected a third title to read together as 2021 begins: Why Indigenous Literatures Matter (Wilfrid Laurier). All the nominated titles were fantastic, and here they are!
