This survey is attempting to get a feel for how often this happens, and what kinds of books are more likely to be ghosted. The goal is to use this information to create proactive tools so that educators can feel supported and confident as they diversify their libraries.
As the caretakers of stories for every child, it's critical that you have creative and useful resources to help you maintain a collection of books that serves every student. Educators and students often see authors as superheroes, but in reality, the educators and readers are the *author's* superheroes. Without you, our stories wouldn't be heard, and we want to do everything we can to make sure you have the right book for the right reader at the right time. We want to do everything we can to help you change the world.
