As always when someone tells us “no,” the kidlit community claps back with a “watch me.”
In the face of cancelled school visits, book promotion tours, publishing and educator conferences, and beloved book festivals, kidlit authors Ellen Oh and Christina Sootornvat created the Everywhere Book Fest.
The digital book fest, billed as a “virtual celebration of authors, books, and readers,” intends to transform the book festival experience into a digital gathering for all book lovers, featuring live and pre-recorded sessions with picture book, middle grade, and young adult authors.
