on March 22-23, 2019
at Hotel Providence in downtown Providence.
Our hashtag is: #KidLitCon2019
The theme is Reaching Readers.
Want to help shape our panels? Go here.
KidLitCon is an annual gathering of people who care about, and/or blog (or Tweet or Instagram or Facebook or make Videos) about children’s and young adult books, including librarians, teachers, authors & illustrators (both published and aspiring), parents, guardians, and book reviewers. KidLitCon is a small, friendly conference, perfect for (often) introverted book lovers.
Attending is a great way to turn virtual blogging friends into real world friends. Past conference topics have ranged from conquering the blogging blahs to learning to podcast to ways to support diverse books.
The theme for KidLitCon 2019 is REACHING READERS. Our panel discussion topics will range from SEO for Dummies to #OwnVoices/#WritingWhileWhite to Using Multicultural Books in the Classroom to Graphic Novels as the Gateway to Literacy. We hope to engage all our audiences: children’s book reviewers on blogs/Instagram/YouTube, librarians, teachers, parents/guardians, authors, and illustrators. We will also have book signings on both days that do not require entrance fees to KidLitCon so that kids can meet their favorite authors and illustrators.
We hope that you’ll join us in March 22-23, 2019 in beautiful Providence, Rhode Island at Hotel Providence! Hotel Providence is a newly renovated, boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Providence.
