A new issue of BCLA’s Perspectives has been published! This issue includes an article by two of the members of the Readers’ Advisory Interest Group, Chloe Riley and Virginia McCreedy, on Dr. Brenna Clarke Gray’s keynote address at the recent RA in a Day workshop, which challenged library workers to read more diversely:

Dr. Brenna Clarke Gray is a professor at Douglas College and a contributor at Book Riot. Her keynote address was entitled “Doing the Work: Diversifying the Reader’s Experience, Come Hell or High Water.”
