Yes, my Kidlitosphere friends, it's that time again. Time to register for KidLitCon. As previously announced, this year's conference will be in New York City, at the main branch of New York Public Library, the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, on September 28th and 29th. This year's host, the fabulous Betsy Bird, has all of the details here. Or you can go straight to the KidLitCon registration form.
Betsy and her equally fabulous co-hosts, Monica Edinger (Educating Alice) and Liz Burns (A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy), are sure to put together a can't miss event. Not only that. The main conference, on Saturday, is free for registered guests. Free! Can't beat that.
It's also not to late to submit session proposals for the conference. The deadline for that is August 15th.
KidLitCon is an annual gathering of people who love and promote children's literature. Conference sessions are designed to edify bloggers, including both reviewers and blogging authors. It's a relatively small conference (attendance this year is expected to be between 100 and 175 people), which makes it a great place to meet people. It's not the place to go if you are looking to collect hundreds of free ARCs. But it is definitely the place to go if you would like to:
- Get ideas for stepping up and/or revitalizing your blog;
- Meet people who you only know through their blogs; and
- Be surrounded by other people who love children's and young adult literature as much as you do.
KidLitCon. It's the place to be! Register now!
