And Other Things to Know From Angry Asian America.
Remembering Our Co-Founder, Thomas Low
Thomas Low, co-founder and CEO of multicultural children’s publishing house Lee & Low Books, has died of cancer at his home in Connecticut. He was 78. Low co-founded Lee & Low Books with Philip Lee in 1991. Though they had no previous publishing experience, both men had noticed, and been dismayed by, a dearth of contemporary diverse stories for children and believed there could be a business opportunity in pursuing their passion to fill that gap in the industry. Since then, Lee & Low has been a leader in supporting new voices in children’s literature, particularly from authors of color.
