KIDLIT NEWS


Kidlit Cares is an effort sponsored by Kate Messner to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Two hundred authors, illustrators, agents, publishers and more have donated their talents (critiques, query passes, etc) to be auctioned to raise funds to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

We are still pushing to reach 5000 members of our Facebook group. Member #5000 will get a batch of kid lit books, and everyone else has a chance to win a batch too. Enter in this giveaway:
