Austin SCBWI joined the Texas Authors and Illustrators RoundTable of TLA to co-sponsor a booth at the TLA Annual Meeting this month.
At the booth, local authors and illustrators who are members of both organizations promoted their own books and talked to librarians about the SCBWI Speakers Bureau, which includes thousands of SCBWI published members. We gave out bookmarks that features information about Texas SCBWI chapters and a link and QR code for the Speakers Bureau.
The Speakers Bureau allows librarians to search for authors and illustrators through a number of categories, including Skype visits and zip code.
Thank you to Austin SCBWI member Kat Kronenberg for the picture and all the members for helping to spread the word about the Speakers Bureau:
