    You’ve launched your career – now what? Discuss, dissect, collaborate, and grow.

    This workshop is for published authors and illustrators to have time to talk about their careers, challenges, deadlines, and upcoming projects. With this workshop, we are aiming for meaningful conversation about how to continue to push the boundaries of our work. How do we acknowledge the power of our recurring themes and at the same time find ways to break new ground and find innovation?

    Buffalo’s premier literary event for children is composed of two parts: KidsLit Week, and EXPO Saturday and is FREE to the public.

    During KidsLit Week, internationally acclaimed authors will visit area schools, libraries, museums and other cultural venues. The visits, scheduled Monday, 11/4/19 – Friday, 11/8/19, aim at inspiring a love of books in students grades pre-K through middle school.

    EXPO Saturday on Saturday November 9, 2019 is a day-long showcase of new and beloved books written for kids. Here, authors interact directly with children through readings, book-signings, presentations and demonstrations. Educators too have a niche at EXPO Saturday. A four-hour, NYS-approved CTLE Workshop is held annually before the Expo opens to the public. Here, registered educators have the opportunity to interact with a panel of authors/illustrators featured at this year’s Expo as well as current trends in education. We hosted 127 educators from across Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada. The workshop received excellent reviews from both the educators and the panel participants.

    The WNY Children's Book Expo is held at Buffalo Niagara Convention Center located at 153 Franklin Street in Buffalo, New York. For more info, visit: wnycbe.com
