Troy Posted November 6, 2017 Report Share Posted November 6, 2017 Rachel Renée Russell’s DORK DIARIES children’s books series has sold over 30 million copies with translation into 36 languages worldwide 222 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list. The Dork Diaries is a fantastically successful series. The main characters are not Black. Rachel said in an interview with The New York Times that she wanted her books to appeal to a wide audience. Would it really be impossible for a Black main character to appeal to a wide (i.e. white) audience? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
