ABC-CBC Speed Dating Lunch with Children’s Authors & Illustrators
Please note: This event is open exclusively to booksellers and librarians, and registration is required (see below).
Each year, the Children’s Book Council partners with the ABC Children’s Group at ABA on popular events at Book Expo America that give booksellers & librarians the opportunity to connect with children’s book creators over new and forthcoming titles.
At the Speed Dating lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to meet authors & illustrators in small groups for three-minute roundtable talks. We select both new and established authors and illustrators who have high energy, charisma, and the ability to make a great impression in a short amount of time.
This year’s author/illustrator attendees include: Ben Hatke, Gitty Daneshvari, Adam Mansbach, Adam Rubin, Linda Urban, Daniel Salmieri, Bob Shea, Steven Savage, Salina Yoon, and Alan Zweibel.
Please note: This event is open exclusively to booksellers and librarians.
To register: purchase tickets through ABA at this link.
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and include a boxed lunch.
