Big Issues in YA

What are the issues that kids and teens face today and what are the books that represent these issues in literature? Turning to books in a time of crisis helps the reader process their situation. The audience will participate to create a crowdsourced list of issues and book titles.

A Bibliophile’s Guide to Providence

Providence Rhode Island

There is so much to see and do in Providence, especially if you like book-related places to visit. The beauty of Providence is that many of these attractions are walking distance from KidLitCon! Here’s a few of Charlotte Taylor‘s favorites!

RISD Art Museum

RISD Art Museum

The RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) Art Museum might not look big from the outside, but it is in fact the 20th largest art museum in the United States, and it is full of treasures old and new.  Well worth a visit!  It opens at 10 am Sunday mornings, so do swing by for a visit before you leave Providence, even if you don’t have time for a full East Side walking tour!

See the full list here.

It’s called Cellar Stories Books but it’s upstairs instead of in the basement. It’s a used bookstore with a special raised and enclosed children’s books section. Be sure to check it out when you attend KidLitCon 2019 in Providence!

Cellar Stories Books: “We’re the largest used and rare bookstore in the smallest state in the US.”
