a ‘diverse’ book as a book that is written by an author with a marginalised identity – this can include being a person of colour and/or indigenous, disabled, LGBTQIA+ and/or gender diverse, or intersections of these identities – about characters with marginalised identities. Books by cis, heterosexual, able-bodied, white women will not be considered ‘diverse books’. In addition, books by a white author about a character with a marginalised identity are not considered ‘diverse books’.
