Children's Book Guild Speaker Series 
2022 - 2023


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 2022-2023 year. Guild members and guests alike are charged $26 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.
