Minorities in Publishing

The brain child of publishing professional Jenn Baker, Minorities in Publishing (MiP) is a podcast discussing diversity (or lack thereof) in the book publishing industry with other professionals working in-house as well as authors and those in the literary scene.

Oct 15, 2015

In the latest interview Jenn speaks with executive editor at Simon & Schuster, Zareen Jaffery, about her introduction to publishing and how networking aided in her moving up & gaining knowledge, her passion for making sure more diverse voices are included on shelves at bookstores, and understanding that there's discomfort that comes with the conversation but that the importance of the conversation is paramount. 


[Also please note that at the halfway mark there's a spoiler for the Pretty Little Liars finale. If you are a fan of that show and haven't watched it try skipping over that portion.
