Inclusion is respect. Inclusion is feeling and being valued.
Featured Reader: Goal is to have unique points of view for each Pulitzer winner.
Featured Readers summarize their key take-away or lesson about Inclusion from one Pulitzer winner in a sentence or two.
Featured readers can also share comments on inclusion/exclusion in the book, and/or why they related or did not connect with the book and why inclusion, reading and dialog matter in 250 words or less.
Featured Readers may provide a personal photo with their Pulitzer or in a setting that reflects the Pulitzer.
Featured Readers can provide a link to a deserving cause with an inclusive mission.
What’s your candid feedback on how a Pulitzer Book Club Guide worked for your book group? Other input for Pulitzer Book Club?

Suggestions for upgrading website content? Are you willing to test-pilot a Pulitzer Book Club Guide with your book group or class and provide suggestions based on your experience?
Can you provide photography/permission, desired backlinks, author info updates, or other content suggestions?
History/Current Events Buffs:
Inclusion Milestones on the website are brief summaries of selected happenings for each Pulitzer year that signal progress toward Inclusion. Can you identify a Milestone that should be added and with a source to document it?
The site will launch without footnotes/sources; adding that info would be a valuable upgrade. Can you help?

Can you donate art or photography, or provide links to copyright-free photos or art visuals for Inclusion Milestones and/or photos of Authors?
