Children's Book Guild Speaker Series 
2021 - 2022


We have an exciting year of programming planned for the Children's Book Guild Speaker Series. Some of our events will be held online, using the Zoom platform, and some will be in person. There will be no fee to attend Speaker Series online programming during the 2021-2022 year. Guild members and guests alike are charged $30 per person for in-person lunch events (this covers the cost of lunch, which will be provided, including vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free options). You may register here.

Support for those working for Racial Justice in Children's Literacy and Education

In lieu of a registration fee, the Guild is offering the option to make a small donation to one organization, chosen monthly by the Program Committee, that supports black lives and racial justice initiatives in children's literacy and education. Donations are optional and will be given by Members and Friends of the Children's Book Guild of Washington, DC.


There is an option to donate after registering.
