I always love your event, but have not signed up. I love reviewing multicultural books. For the past few years I’ve had to manually enter all of the sponsor links because they break when I copy them and paste into my post. It takes a while to look them up or go back to the previous year’s posts. I may just review a multicultural book and display your logo.
