A Celebration of Illustration!

One-Day Conference: A Celebration of Illustration!
Friday, May 14, 2021

Illustration, art, and even typography play key roles in creating engaging and memorable children's books. Individuals working with children and families in libraries know the importance of visuals in children's literature and how art can help bring life to children's favorite stories. Illustration can also play key roles in literacy and in building diverse and representative collections. Whether delivering an in-person story-time, encouraging patron families to expand their literary horizons, or developing art-based programming, librarians know art and illustration is integral to fostering a love of reading throughout childhood--and beyond!

Join key children's book creators, leaders in children's librarianship, and others on Friday, May 14, 2021 as we celebrate illustration in children's literature. This virtual day conference has it all: panel discussions on current issues and trends in illustration with award-winner creators, illustration-based continuing education programs to help further your work with children and families in libraries, and more! Space is limited, so register today!

Look for more information coming soon, including: conference FAQs, a day-of schedule, descriptions of general session panels and education programming, and more!
