The November Connecticut Children's Lit Calendar is going up a couple of days early because Connecticut is expecting power outages in the next day or so due to Hurricane Sandy. Depending on what's happening in the state later this week, you should probably check with the venues for next weekend's events to make sure they are back to their normal schedule.
November is always a big month for Children's Literature in Connecticut because of the Connecticut Children's Book Fair. This year there are a number of other author appearances as well.
