Join Us to Learn "What's New"

Join us to learn "What's New in Children's Books?" on Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 at Lesley University's University Hall on the Porter Square Campus. 

This is a fun morning, open to the public, that connects you with acclaimed authors and illustrators and with other children’s book lovers. The event includes a book display, book sales and signings, a “Best New Books for Fall” talk and refreshments. 

Unfortunately, one of our announced speakers for this event, Gregory Maguire, had to withdraw for personal reasons. You can hear Gregory speak on a panel at the Boston Book Festival.

Speaking in Gregory's place will be author Erin Dionne who says her novels are for "teens, tweens, and anyone who survived junior high." Her latest, "Ollie and the Science of Treasure Hunting," is a mystery that takes place on the Boston Harbor Islands and a sequel to the Edgar Award nominee "Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking." Other speakers include Eric Velasquez, an award-winning illustrator and author of picture books;  Liza Ketchum, who writes acclaimed middle-grade and young adult historical and other fiction, including her latest Out of Left Field, which is set in the much happier Red Sox season of 2004; and Susan Lynn Meyer, author of the middle-grade novel, Black Radishes, who will discuss her upcoming historical fiction picture book, a collaboration with illustrator Eric Velasquez.

And to top it off, two expert pickers for Best New Books for fall: Christian Porter, librarian at the Park School, and Terri Schmitz, owner of the Children’s Book Shop in Brookline.

Join us for a great morning!

Saturday, Nov. 8 from 8:30 a.m. (coffee, refreshments, book display and registration) to 12:30 p.m., when we’ll finish off with book signing.
