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.
