We Won a Grant from Providence Tourism Council!

Mia and I are thrilled to have received a grant from the Providence Tourism Council that will go a long way to helping us bring in great keynote speakers (to be announced soon) to KidLitCon 2019!

Providence Tourism Council said: “KidLitCon is the kind of event for which Providence is becoming known on the international tourism stage. The Council is proud to support KidLitCon and is happy to welcome the visitors attracted by your programming.”
