One of the best sources I have for the local children’s book scene is a list
serve run by Sharon Levin, Bay Area Children's Literature List.
You can ask to join listserve by emailing

source of information of author visits, events, local authors. Sharon blogs

Subject: [baisl] Local authors for 6-12?
I am trying to plan some author visits for this Spring/Fall that would appeal
to either a middle school or high school audience. Being relatively new to the
area, I have few author connections. Has anyone had a good experience/know
anyone local who may be interested in doing a school visit?
Thanks for any help you can lend!
