When we created the Kidlit Social back in the spring of 2020, it was meant to be a temporary thing to keep folks connected during the pandemic. That’s why we called it the Kidlit Distancing Social. 😀
Now, more than two years and 85 episodes later, it’s time to move on to other projects, so our we’re calling it a day for regularly scheduled episodes of the Social.
We *will* return with occasional pop-up Kidlit Socials when we come across a particularly fascinating person or subject – and we’ll be sure to let you know.
On this final episode, Laura answers a wide range of questions about writing and publishing:
Laura asked viewers to put a book they love that they’ve read recently in the chat box, and here’s the list:
Kindra – The Underneath. Middle grade. Knocked my socks off.
