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!)
