Last Thursday’s Children’s Books Boston kick-off party at Simmons College was a fantastic success, with nearly 300 Boston-area publishers, authors and illustrators, reviewers, agents, librarians, booksellers, and children’s literature academics in attendance. After an introduction by each of the CBB partners — Candlewick Press, Charlesbridge, The Horn Book, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and Simmons College Center for the Study of Children’s Literature — attendees were turned loose to enjoy refreshments and excellent company. We Horn Bookers had a great time, and hope that you did too!
CBB is still in its very early stages; if you attended the kick-off party (or if you couldn’t attend, but would like to be involved in future events!), please fill out this survey to help guide the organization’s development.
