Event description


As you may know, SLJ's Day of Dialog sold out very quickly this year. Because of the high demand, we will be offering a livestream of the event to those who can’t join us in-person.

Livestream registrants will be able to tune in on May 31 to watch the full-day’s worth of author presentations and panels, and will be among the first to learn the winners of the 2017 Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards. You’ll also receive access to the event archive for two months.
