You Have an Idea for a Children’s Book—What’s Next?

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Woods Memorial Library


This session is geared toward adults who are interested in writing books for children or young adults (teen writers are welcome to attend). You will learn tips for crafting, critiquing, and revising your story. We will complete brief writing exercises to develop a “pitch” as well as an attention-grabbing opening line for your work-in-progress. Plus, plenty of time for Q&A. Whether you’re beginning at the “I have a great idea!” stage or you’ve completed a manuscript, this program is for you!

Lori Alexander has written picture books like BACKHOE JOE and FAMOUSLY PHOEBE as well as the FUTURE BABY board book series. Her first chapter book, ALL IN A DROP: HOW ANTONY VAN LEEUWENHOEK DISCOVERED AN INVISIBLE WORLD received a Sibert Honor Award for distinguished nonfiction. Her newest book, A SPORTING CHANCE: HOW LUDWIG GUTTMANN CREATED THE PARALYMPIC GAMES, was a Junior Library Guild Selection and received a Kirkus starred review.

Lori has been a Tucson resident for more than twenty years. Her husband is a scientist at Roche Diagnostics in Oro Valley and her two book-loving teens attend Mountain View High School. Visit Lori at or on Twitter @LoriJAlexander or Instagram @lorialexanderbooks
