NH Authors, Adi Rule and Erin Moulton, introduce Kidlit603– a network that aims to connect, celebrate, and support the author community across the granite state.

There will be time for Q&A and for librarians to share how Kidlit603 could help bridge the gap between local artists and local libraries.
