Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and First Book are teaming up for Inside Story. This new program connects readers to book creators through special events sponsored by Independent bookstores. Hooray!
Everyone is a winner when new authors get to promote their books, Indies sell more books, and kids own more books. For every book sold at one of these events, a copy will be donated to be given away to a child in need.
This initiative needs our support. So check out the list of participating stores in the U.S. or Australia. Visit your favorite author to hear them speak about the making of their latest book. Don't forget to mark your calendar for 2014.
Maybe you'll be a speaker at next year's event!
