Stacy Whitman:Diversity & Multiculturalism

Stacy Whitman, Editorial Director, Tu Books (Lee and Low)

Lee and Low books prefers the word diversity to multicultural.

"About everyone. For everyone," is the motto at Lee and Low.

What questions can we ask as writers, whether we're writing from our own perspective or writing and doing research about a different culture? Here are a few:

Whom are people loyal to?
Who gets respect?
How do people manage their emotions?
Who is in control?
How does a culture view time?
Am I in your space?

Stacy recommends checking out Mitali Perkins' website and blog.

Stacy will be posting these questions on her blog which you can read HERE.
