October Connecticut Children's Literature Calendar

October into November--A Wreath for Emmett Till by Marilyn Nelson has been selected for the One Book, One Hartford community reading program. Exhibits, book discussions, films, and other programs will be taking place at Hartford libraries throughout the month of October and into November.

Tuesday, Oct. 2, Caragh O'Brien, UConn Co-op, Storrs, 6:00 PM

Thursday, Oct. 4, Laura Harrington, R.J. Julia, Madision, 7:00 PM. Laura Harrington isn't a children's or young adult writer, but I suspect her book, Alice Bliss, is going to show up on some of those adult books for teen readers' lists, so I'm including it.

Thursday, Oct. 11, R. L. Stine will join two other authors for Mark My Words, at the Simsbury High School Auditorium at 7:30 PM. This is an event to benefit the Mark Twain House and Museum. Tickets are $45, $65, and $125.
