Speakers List

The Children's Book Guild of Washington D.C. is a professional organization of published authors and illustrators, and specialists in children's literature. This Speaker's List includes members of the Guild who do speaking engagements both in their home areas or out of town. Some book titles are listed for each author or illustrator.

Please make sure that the audience, particularly a children's audience, is familiar with the speaker's work prior to the presentation date, and remember to give your librarian or bookseller plenty of time to locate the books you need. Reading one of an author's books to the classes that will attend the presentation is an excellent preparation.

Question and answer sessions are a big feature with many of these speakers. A sale of books in conjunction with the author's appearance is very desirable when possible.

With a school audience, it is expected that a teacher or other responsible adult will remain with the children throughout the speaker's appearance.
