Upcoming Events

Happy Wednesday, everybody! Member Kristin O’Keefe has passed along some information about upcoming children’s lit events through our regional Yahoo group so I thought I’d also share it here!

(And don’t forgot, our lovely Susan Detwiler’s ABC Event is this Sunday, April 19th at the Miller Branch, Howard County Public Library!)


Hello! Had a few things that might be of interest to our local SCBWI this week:

Thought SCBWI members might want to attend this weekend’s Bethesda Literary Festival (April 17-19). Speakers include American Girl author Valerie Tripp and several children’s book events. More here at: http://www.bethesda.org/bethesda/bethesda-literary-festival

Kensington, MD has a day of the book festival on Sunday, April 26th. Long list of children’s book authors, might be fun for some local authors for next year?  http://www.dayofthebook.com

I also published a piece in today’s Washington Post about the magic that happens when children meet the authors of their favorite books. Thought some of our MD/DE/WV authors might enjoy. Go here to read!


Thanks for sharing, Kristin, we appreciate the heads up!
