2019 NAPIBOWRIWEE GUEST LINEUP ANNOUNCED!
It may be April Fool’s Day 2019 but this is no joke… 🙂 I am excited to announce our special guest author & artist line-up for this year’s NATIONAL PICTURE BOOK WRITING WEEK (AKA “NAPIBOWRIWEE”) taking place May 1-7, 2019!
Below is a list of our guests along with a link to their websites so you can take a sneak peek at their work! Our authors will not only provide words of wisdom and encouragement during our week-long event but they have also generously supplied us with autographed copies of their latest books for our annual random contest drawing for prizes at the end of the week!
