  1. Hi,

    Do you know of any local Children authors and/or illustrators that are willing to come to an elementary school to share their books or illustrations for free or a very small nominal amount?

    I would very much appreciate any input.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Diana, We don’t know but we can ask our reader community. You might also want to start with the list of authors that came to the festival. We have many fabulous local authors!
