We hope this year’s online Festival will allow you and your students to participate in new ways! Below is the schedule for Children’s, Middle Grade, and YA. (They’re also included with the other books in the official schedule.) Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if your class plans to tune in for a session!
Each session will be recorded and can be watched almost immediately upon its conclusion. If your students cannot make the live version of the session but would still like to submit a question for the author, please send it along to email@example.com.
