Calling all aspiring children’s book writers. Are you currently writing a children’s picture book? Wanting to develop a young adult novel? Or just curious to learn how writers develop their story ideas and get manuscripts ready for market?
Then come to Memphis Public Library’s annual Bookstock event at the Benjamin Hooks Library, Saturday, April 18. While you're there, plan to attend Memphis Parent’s Writers Panel. Bookstock celebrates local writers with readings, fun family activities, author readings, and group discussions. The event takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
MP’s Writers Panel is scheduled to meet at 2:30 p.m. We’ll be holding an hour-long panel discussion on writing children’s literature and getting work published. The event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
