​Hey all!  As National Reading Month rolls around again, I keep getting
emails about where/how to contact local authors for school and library
presentations.

Please remember that the Society of Children's Book Authors and
Illustrators has a very active chapter in Michigan (400+ members).  A
listing of those published who do talks is at the Mi--SCBWI site:
https://michigan.scbwi.org/authors-illustrators  .

​Also the State keeps a list known as the Mich. Authors & Illustrators
Database. It's at: http://libraryofmichigan.state.mi.us/Authors  .

And do remember, the sooner you can schedule an author for Reading Month,
the better.  Many are completely booked months out.

Have a happy March! (And it isn't too soon to start preparing for next
March!)
Ciao!
