NH Authors, Adi Rule and Erin Moulton, introduce Kidlit603-- a network that aims to connect, celebrate, and support the author community across the granite state. They'll introduce an impressive list of New Hampshire authors and illustrators as well as answer questions like, what is the difference between an indie, self, and traditionally published author? What can an author bring to my library? What do I do with an author, anyway? There will be time for Q&A and for librarians to share how Kidlit603 could help bridge the gap between local artists and local libraries.
