& Continental Breakfast Start at 7:30am!



The WNY Children's Book Expo will take place from 10am-3pm at the Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center on November 10, 2018. Educators can register for a 4 Hour CTLE Workshop that will run from 8am-noon.

Fifteen children's authors and illustrators will participate. Swag bags filled with a bounty of educational materials, a children's book, AND a $20 coupon to spend on books at the Expo will be distributed to all registrants, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Medaille College.

The Expo Educator Event sold out last year, so plan to register early for this amazing opportunity to meet a line-up of award-winning children's authors and illustrators! (Advance registration only. No walk-ins.)


Mark your calendars now. More details will follow soon!
