Phoebe Robinson’s imprint, Tiny Reparations Books, will amplify marginalized voices
Dope Queen Phoebe Robinson published her second book, “Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay,” in 2018.
Her new publishing imprint, Tiny Reparations Books, aims to channel that change and, as she wrote on Instagram, to “uplift and center voices that [are] oft disregarded, discredited, and disrespected.”Advertisement“Just like with ‘2 Dope Queens,’ Tiny Reparations Books is really a space where I accept everybody,” Robinson told The Times in a phone interview earlier this week.
The new imprint will follow suit, curating a selection of underrepresented voices.
Two books later, when she brought the idea to her publisher, Plume (a division of Penguin Random House), Tiny Reparations Books was born.
“This is a lifelong journey of rejiggering the institution to reflect more what society looks like.”From her podcasting career (now including “ Black Frasier ,” which she launched last month) to Tiny Reparations Books and the Tiny Reparations production company, Robinson is a queen of all trades.
