Diane Langston worked in children’s books wholesaling for over 30 years prior to her retirement this year. In the early days of Canadian children’s book publishing and wholesaling, she worked as a sales representative in British Columbia and Alberta. After a brief interlude in the wine industry (marketing and promotions), she landed at United Library Services (Calgary) in the role of children’s book buyer and manager of collection development. Diane has participated extensively in the children’s book community, chairing the Calgary chapter of the Children’s Literature Round Table, as a committee member for the Kaleidoscope Children’s Literature Conferences, and as a board member for the Canadian Children’s Book Centre. She is currently working on an event related to children’s literature and Truth and Reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous people.
