Edelweiss is collaborating with publishers, authors, booksellers, libraries, and other organizations to amplify under-supported voices in publishing.


Meetups are available for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC book folks on June 8 & 9 at 4PM EST. Share what you're most excited about at Bookfest and then stay connected throughout the conference!

Our popular Editors' Pick series is coming to Bookfest!

Register now and join us in one (or all!) of the six Bookfest Genre Lounges to discover editors' favorite new books by BIPOC or LGBTQ+ authors you don't want to miss. In each session, hear directly from the editors or authors of highly anticipated titles!

All proceeds from the Editors' Picks series benefit the work of Ascend.


The mission of Ascend is to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in publishing and technology industries. We do this through investing in organizations that are already doing this work well, providing access through internships and scholarships, and amplifying under-supported voices.
