The Latinx Kidlit Book Festival is around the corner: from December 4-5, 2020 on YouTube. The two-day festival is packed with an amazing schedule of kidlit authors, illustrators, and books.
For a more in-depth look at what to expect, plan to check out our #WeNeedDiverseMG series on November 23rd. We’re excited that our own contributor, Aixa Perez-Prado, is also a volunteer for the festival, and she will have the scoop on all the great stuff they’ve planned for us.
