Eastern PA and Western PA Team Up for PaLA!

The Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA) conference is happening this week, and thanks to Western PA SCBWI Regional Advisor, Elizabeth Pagel-Hogan, and Eastern PA SCBWI PAL Coordinator, Lindsay Bandy, members from both regions have teamed up to donate signed copies of their books as a raffle prize for conference attendees. Check out all these gorgeous books that were generously donated by our Pennsylvania members!

Many of our local SCBWI members are available for school and library visits, so we encourage you to share these titles and creators with your local school and library communities. A special thank-you to Elizabeth Pagel-Hogan for compiling the covers and titles (with links below) for this fantastic collection.
