WNBA-LA is thrilled to be part of The BookFest Fall 2021.
On Saturday, October 23rd, at 11am PST, our chapter VP Debra Eckerling is moderating the Kid Lit panel. Angela Shante – our kid lit and diversity chair – is one of the panelists.
Kid Lit: Culture, Character and Creativity
This discussion features authors from around the world who use their words to celebrate an array of cultures, help build character, and inspire creativity in young readers. Explore the worlds these diverse children’s book authors have crafted and discover new reads for the children in your life.
New to The BookFest is the “Pitching Room” and several live interactive panels for authors to get their manuscripts critiqued and spotlighted. If you are an author ready to pitch, visit this link for more information: https://conta.cc/3CGkBAf
