Celebration Time

Get ready to cheer. We are proud to introduce the honorees for the 14th class of our annual 28 Days Later campaign. A Black History Month celebration of Black children’s book creators, we will showcase an outstanding author or illustrator each day. We invite you to come along on our journey and spread the news far and wide.

Our campaign will begin on Monday, February 1. Look for insightful posts and interviews that shine a light on topics such as the path to publication, writing inspirations and the state of the industry.
