Buffalo’s premier literary event for children is composed of two parts: KidsLit Week, and EXPO Saturday and is FREE TO THE PUBLIC.
During KidsLit Week, internationally acclaimed authors will visit area schools, libraries, museums and other cultural venues. The visits, scheduled Monday, 11/5/18 – Friday, 11/9/18, aim at inspiring a love of books in students grades pre-K through middle school.
EXPO Saturday is a day-long showcase of new and beloved books written for kids. Here, authors interact directly with children through readings, book-signings, presentations and demonstrations. Educators too have a niche at EXPO Saturday. A NYS-approved 4-hour CTLE Workshop is held annually before the Expo opens to the public. Here, registered educators have the opportunity to interact with a panel of authors/illustrators featured at this year’s Expo as well as current trends in education. We hosted 127 educators from across Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada. The workshop received excellent reviews from both the educators and the panel participants.
