Lahaska: Children's Author/Illustrator Speed Dating

We are celebrating Children’s Book Week Wednesday, May 2nd at 6:30 pm by hosting a Children’s Author/Illustrator Speed Dating event.

What is Author-Illustrator speed dating? Artists/creators will be stationed at tables with samples of their work and authors will rotate from artist to artist for eight-minute "dates" where authors and illustrators can meet each other, discuss their work, and hopefully start to discuss future possibilities.

This is geared towards those who may have a great idea for a story, but aren't sure how to execute it from an artistic perspective, and artists/creators who are looking for new collaborators to put words to their art.

Format: Children’s Author/Illustrator Speed Dating will consist of 8-minute conversations between one author and one illustrator at a time. After each eight-minute time period, artists will remain seated and authors will rotate from table to table. Rotations will be assigned and distributed the night of the event.

Illustrators will be stationed at the tables so they may show any work they bring with them. The authors will rotate tables.

All authors and illustrators can sign-up through the links below.

For more information, please email or call 267-544-5131.
