Books Set in the Mid-Atlantic Region
Many Guild members live in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Not surprisingly, the history, people, and details of these places--and the surrounding mid-Atlantic region--have provided rich inspiration for our fiction and nonfiction. We are delighted to share this list with teachers, librarians, media specialists, parents, grandparents--in short, all those bringing together young people and books. We hope you find it helpful.
Many of these authors and illustrators are listed in the Guild Speakers Bureau and available for school visits or booktalks. This list was compiled by The Children's Book Guild of Washington, D.C. Please feel free to photocopy it and share it with others.
