Everywhere Book Fest

Coming to a screen near you … via YouTube … it’s the Everywhere Book Fest: a virtual gathering of kidlit authors, illustrators, and books.

Everywhere Book Fest

The idea: in a time when we can’t go out to find the book, let’s bring the book to the reader. The schedule for the two-day event features live and pre-recorded sessions on such topics as sibling stories, writing #HERstory, and Magic vs. Science.

The beauty of this event is that even if you can’t catch it live, you can still go back to YouTube to watch the sessions on demand. SO … for those of you still supplementing asynchronous school activities … check it out. And for those of you who just love good kidlit discussions or want to get ideas for new books to read…check it out!

Heather Murphy Capps has always had a deep appreciation for comfort and elegance. She and Claudia would have run out of money quickly together but would absolutely have been on the same page about taxis and nice restaurants. And of course, solving mysteries about beautiful art. That said, Heather also appreciates Jamie’s love of complication, which is why she spent several years living in rural Kenya and then became a television news reporter, which involved standing for hours in the middle of hurricanes and political battles. Now she’s raising middle grade readers and writing for them. She loves to read and write books with lots of great science, magic, mystery, and adventure. Heather is an #ownvoices author and committed to creating more diversity in publishing.

  1. This is a fabulous opportunity and will be fully available even if you can’t watch anything during Friday and Saturday. You can watch all, or pick and choose from a wonderful variety of conversations that (I find) validate emotions and thoughts, trigger new ideas, and provide such sense of community and encouragement as they speak.
