The SCBWI-IL Booth Team is making plans to wow Illinois teachers and school librarians at their annual conferences: IRC, Oct. 4-5, in Peoria & AISLE (formerly ISLMA), Nov. 1-3, in Tinley Park. We plan to showcase and hand-sell recently published (2016-2018) 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. Mail two copies of your (2016-2018) PAL published book and any promotional materials (150 copies) by SEPTEMBER 26, 2018: Contact Louann Brown for mailing address.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  2. If you’d like to participate by doing a book signing and manning the booth, etc., please contact:
    A.  Louann Brown for IRC in Peoria, Oct. 4-5
    B. Alice McGinty  for AISLE in Tinley Park, Nov. 1-3

  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 Brown.
