On Wednesday, August 1st, SCBWI members and friends are invited to meet Heather Hebert at Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA. As store manager, Heather will be able to give us an inside look at what goes into running a successful independent children’s bookstore.
If you’ve never been to Children’s Book World, you’re in for a treat. Though modest in size, the store is brimming from floor to ceiling with our favorites—children’s books! But CBW is more than just a place to buy books. CBW offers special programs such as Book-of-the-Month Club, school summer reading fundraisers, book fair fundraisers, Book Talks, and author and illustrator visits. My children and I have been to several of these, and they are always a big hit!
For more information about CBW, visit their website at http://www.childrensbookworld.net. For further reading, the Philly Voice published an article featuring Children’s Book World in November 2015.You can view that here: https://www.phillyvoice.com/haverfords-childrens-book-world-endures-face-industry-changes/
Bring your enthusiasm, curiosity, questions, and wallets (I know I won’t be able to resist buying at least one book!).
