KidLitCon is an annual conference of people who write about and talk about children’s and teen literature, including librarians, authors, teachers, parents, publishers, and readers. Attendees share a love of children’s books, as well as a determination to get the right books into young readers’ hands. People attend KidLitCon to learn about best practices in evaluating and reviewing books, how and why to become award committee judges, and how to defend and promote the books that kids need and want. 

People also attend KidLitCon for the chance to spend time face to face with kindred spirits, other adults who enjoy and care about children’s and YA literature. Attendees come away energized, bursting with ideas for programming and projects.

This year’s keynote speakers are Rachel Renee Russell, author of the best-selling Dork Diaries series; Pamela Tuck, author of As Fast As Words Could Fly; and author/illustrator Floyd Cooper, whose dozens of books depicting African American children and families have won multiple awards and honors.

Here is all of the information that you need:

We hope to see you at KidLitCon in November!
