Calling all diverse kidlit professionals in the Greater Boston Area

The reason I’ve been super busy this last month is that in addition to writing and mommying two small children, I’ve been working with the New England branch of the SCBWI to put together a networking event at the Boston Public Library. This is the first time I’m helping to put something like this together so we’ll see how it goes :)

More information:

NESCBWI Networking event for Diverse Children’s Literature Professionals

Thursday, May 14th, 5:30-7:30 pm

Network with authors and illustrators: Nandini Bajpai, Janet Costa Bates, Sarah Brannen, Paula Lee, Francisco X. Stork, Nicole Tadgell, Holly Thompson, Padma Venkatraman, and more.

Who is invited: Children’s literature professionals, including teachers, librarians, booksellers, writers, illustrators, agents, and editors. College and graduate students are welcome. We would like to specifically encourage people from groups that have thus far been underrepresented children’s literature to join us.
