The backlist titles you choose to carry help create the culture of your store and can showcase your store values. The rise of the #DisruptTexts movement has brought this into higher relief and has started a conversation challenging the classic backlist canon sold in bookstores and taught in schools. This session will provide insight on how to go beyond the classics and highlight tactics for working with students and adults of all abilities and cultures to promote a broader experience of humanity in literature.
