Literary Lights for Children ~ 2011 Honorees

The Associates of the Boston Public Library is pleased to invite you to the 13th-annual Literary Lights for Children tea party, in the beautiful Bates Reading Room at the Boston Public Library.

Literary Lights for Children seeks to raise awareness of children's literature, promote literacy, honor children's authors, and raise money for children's services, programs and conservation efforts at the Boston Public Library. Students selected from Boston area schools will introduce and present the awards to each of the honored authors. The honorees will then discuss their writing careers and share their love of books with the audience of over 400 children and adults. Tea refreshments will be served.

Immediately following the event, there will be book sales and signings with the authors. (The book sales and signing portion of the program is free and open to the public.)
