We are partnering with Edelweiss to honor Juneteenth 2024 with Juneteenth: A Celebration of Black Joy, a special issue of Edelweiss' newsletter devoted to celebrating stories of Black joy, pleasure, and liberation. We invite Edelweiss publishers to join us in the creation of this issue, which will support our work to build a world where books reflect the diversity of human experience.  

For this special issue, we ask Edelweiss publishers to consider the question, “What is a book that best represents Black Joy to you?” and make a short recommendation to the Edelweiss community. This personal pitch will be included alongside the chosen title and a link to purchase/pre-order the book. Titles of all genres and publication dates can be recommended for this issue. 

The Black Joy special issue will be sent to Edelweiss’ full mailing list of over 100,000 US Edelweiss users on June 19, 2024.

Publishers can reserve a space in the Juneteenth issue for $300 dollars per title and can reserve up to two spaces per imprint. All proceeds will go to support Legacy Unbound’s work to disrupt patterns of exclusion by placing interns from historically excluded communities in paid internships in the book industry.


This reservation will include: 

  • Space of 150 words to pitch your title in an Edelweiss special newsletter sent to over 100,000 book buyers and readers (includes jacket cover, author, pub date, and link to purchase/pre-order via Legacy Unbound’s Bookshop). 

  • Promotion on social media by Legacy Unbound 

Submissions are due by May 10th, and space is limited. Recommended titles will be reviewed by the Edelweiss team for adherence to this theme, and publishers will be notified by May 17th of their acceptance to the issue. 

We look forward to your title recommendations and to working together to fulfill our pledge to support and amplify diverse voices in the book industry.
