We are putting together a 2019 SCBWI Reading List to promote our PAL authors and illustrators who have published, or will publish, a book, or books from 1/1/19 - 12/31/19.

This premiere list will be organized by category, and searchable by category, theme, and/or subject, making it a great tool for booksellers, caregivers, librarians and teachers.

The Reading List has become an important part of our support for PAL members since its inception. In furthering the reach of the list to decision-makers in the industry, we are expanding our marketing efforts to help get your books maximum visibility. The list will be sent to over 22,000 independent booksellers, public children’s librarians, library directors and school librarians. Plus, there will be advertising with PW, SLJ, and more. All this opportunities will help draw attention to your books!
