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 :)
NESCBWI Networking event for Diverse Children’s Literature Professionals
Thursday, May 14th, 5:30-7:30 pm Boston Public Library, Central branch, Children’s Library 700 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116 Cost: FREE
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.
Books will be available to purchase from Porter Square Books.
RSVP on my boskidlit facebook page (not required but suggested so we can get an idea of numbers)
