SCBWI-MI is proud to partner with teachers and librarians to provide students with the resources to expand their love of reading. We hope the information included will not only allow you to locate authors and illustrators in your area but help you discover ways to create a great literary experience for your students. Feel free to take advantage of these resources and share them with other professionals.
Authors and illustrators in your area: SCBWI School Presenter List** This link gives you a list of children’s book authors and illustrators in those different regions. Each region (1-10) is found at the bottom of the page on a tab. Once you find your region, click on that tab and it will take you to a list of authors and illustrators separated by age category — picture book, middle grade, and young adult. Each author has indicated the age groups they present to as well as the themes their presentations touch on. We hope that this will help you find a presenter who best fits your needs. Once you find a speaker, we encourage you to check out their website for more information on their individual presentations as well as how to contact them.
