The Writing and Illustrating Kids’ Books panel (formerly Getting Started in Children’s Books), is an annual event at the Vancouver Public Library (Vancouver, Canada).
Co-sponsored by the Children’s Writers and Illustrators of British Columbia (, it features published authors and illustrators who share their stories about getting their start in the industry, speak about what they’ve learned, and answer audience questions on the subject. This is an invaluable event for any aspiring kids’ book author or illustrator.
I’ve just learned that I have the privilege of being one of the panelists in the coming year: February 29, 2016 from 7-8:30pm. Too early to mark it on your calendar? No worries; I’ll post another reminder closer to the time!
