The BosKidLit Author Events Master List of Links

I try to update my Boston Area children’s author events calendar every week. This sounds easy, but actually it’s time consuming and often a little bit tricky.

Here is the master list of websites that I pore through every week [edit 3/31/15: now monthly]. I thought someone else might find it useful. Please let me know of more websites I should bookmark.

* As you can see, I don’t have an exhaustive list of library websites, so do contact me if you hear of a library that regularly hosts children’s author events. I don’t want to scour websites that don’t host children’s authors.

  1. Perhaps not helpful right now, but The Elephant’s Trunk in Lexington has events almost every weekend – Pat Lowery Collins was there last weekend. I think this week isn’t an author but a Hungry Caterpillar visit, though I’m not sure.

      Thanks, P! I actually already listed them though. :) Let me know if you know of any events that they haven’t listed on their website.

    Thanks, Terry! I haven’t seen this site before! However, this look like a site for finding authors who will come visit your school rather than an event listing. Also, I don’t list school visits unless they are open to the public.
    But thanks so much for introducing me to a new blog!
