The 14th Annual Literary Lights for Children Tea Party

Location: Bates Reading Room, Central Library, Copley Square

The Associates of the Boston Public Library is pleased to invite you to the fourteenth annual Literary Lights for Children tea party on Sunday, September 30th in the beautiful Bates Reading Room of the Boston Public Library. The 2012 honorees are: Kevin Hawkes, Christopher Paolini, Mitali Perkins and Gary Schmidt.

“Literary Lights for Children” seeks to raise awareness of children’s literature, promote literacy, honor children’s authors, and raise money for the Boston Public Library’s children’s services and collections. Students selected from Boston area schools introduce and present the awards to each of the honored authors. The honorees then discuss their writing careers and share their love of books with the audience of over 400 children and adults. Tea refreshments are served.

Immediately following the tea party, there will be a book signing session. Books will be available for sale, or children are welcome to bring their own books. The book sales & signing portion of the program is free and open to the public.
