The SCBWI-IL Booth Team is making plans to wow Illinois teachers and school librarians at their annual conference Illinois Reading Conference, IRC, Oct. 3-4, in Peoria.  We plan to showcase and hand-sell recently published (2017-2019) PAL books. In addition we will distribute your posters, flyers, postcards and brochures to promote your books and your school/library visits/Skype presentations.

How can you make sure your book/promo materials are included?

1 By SEPTEMBER 25, 2019, mail two copies of your (2017-2019) PAL published book and any promotional material (150 copies) to Louann Brown.  Please email Louann Brown for her mailing address.

2. If you’d like to participate by doing a book signing and manning the booth, etc., please contact:  Louann Brown                                                                                                                                             
3. A few authors cleverly promote themselves by offering free Skype visits, a toy that relates to their book, posters, etc.  If this sounds like something you’d like to do, contact Louann at the email posted above.
