ABC-CBC Tea 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.
Tea with Children’s Authors brings together small groups of booksellers/librarians with individual authors & illustrators for refreshments and a 30 minute conversation about the author’s life and work. Authors and illustrators are selected for this program based on their profile and literary appeal, as well as the strength of their highlighted project.
This year’s author/illustrator attendees include:
Grace Lin, Marissa Meyer, Matthew Reinhart, Adam Silvera, Duncan Tonatiuh, and more.
To register: tickets can be purchased through ABA at this link. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and include tea and light refreshments.
