1:30 – 2:15pm  -Panel Discussion with Anika Denise, Deb Kovacs, Josh Funk, Barbara Fisch, and Lee Wind

Reaching Readers: Part 1 Getting Books to Kids (industry and author perspectives)

Great books need great readers; great readers need great books.   But how to get the two together? This panel of authors and professional publicists and book promoters talk about strategies they use to get books into the hands of gatekeepers (teachers, librarians, reviewers, booksellers, and family), and strategies that the gatekeepers can use to make the process of discovering the right books for their kids more effective.

4:15-6:00pm – Author meet and mingle. Books will be available for purchase & signing and speed critiques.

About the conference!

KidLitCon 2019 will be held in Providence, Rhode Island

on March 22-23, 2019

at Hotel Providence in downtown Providence.

Our hashtag is: #KidLitCon2019

The theme is Reaching Readers.

KidLitCon is an annual gathering of people who care about, and/or blog (or Tweet or Instagram or Facebook or make Videos) about children’s and young adult books, including librarians, teachers, authors & illustrators (both published and aspiring), parents, guardians, and book reviewers. KidLitCon is a small, friendly conference, perfect for (often) introverted book lovers.

Attending is a great way to turn virtual blogging friends into real world friends. Past conference topics have ranged from conquering the blogging blahs to learning to podcast to ways to support diverse books.
