Upcoming MN Children’s Book Events

This was such a great post by my fellow children’s book illustrator Christina Rodriguez, that i had to repost it here!

Attention children’s book and YA writers, illustrators, librarians, readers and enthusiasts: you’re in luck if you live in or near the Twin Cities!
