*Hello Oregon Librarians!*

I wanted to introduce myself. I am the new Library and Bookstore Liaison
for the Oregon Chapter of the Society of Children's Book Authors and
Illustrators (SCBWI).

I'm excited to take on this position and have been working on ways to
connect Oregon's vibrant community of children's authors and illustrators
with local librarians and teachers. One opportunity I'm particularly
excited about is our New Release flyer.

Each spring and fall we compile this list to keep you informed of upcoming
new releases.  All titles are by trade publishers and available through the
major distributors. The list also includes contact information for authors
and illustrators interested in doing events.

If you are interested in hosting an event with one of our authors or
illustrators feel free to contact them directly using the
contact information in the flyer. If you have questions about the SCBWI or
ideas about other ways we can collaborate with you, please contact me
directly (talia.heath at gmail.com <talia.heath at gmail.com)>).

You can find the downloadable print quality flyer here:

If you'd like to have the flyer emailed to you directly, please email me
with your contact information and I'll add you to our mailing list.

For more information about the SCBWI please see below.

Thank you for all you do to bring quality children’s literature to our
local kids.

We look forward to working with you!

prestigious names in children’s literature and there are currently more
than 22,000 members worldwide in over 70 regional chapters.

*Our Mission* is to support the creation and availability of quality
children’s books around the world and act as a consolidated voice for
writers and illustrators of children’s books worldwide. The SCBWI not only
sponsors multiple conferences and events, providing its members with vital
information on writing craft and business, it also presents many grants and
awards including the annual *Golden Kite Award* for the best fiction and
nonfiction and the *Sid Fleischman Award for Humor.*
