We may be socially distant, but we can still come together for SWON's annual picture book event -- now in its 25th year! We'll just have a read-in... in! Since everything is a little different this year, we'll be featuring several "Discussion Group" sessions which you are welcome to join. These discussions will be loosely based around topics of potential interest and gently moderated by volunteers who will provide potential books for discussion and we encourage you to bring titles of your own to the "table" as well. 

We'll also be featuring several great author talks, with a choice in AM sessions and a keynote session with award-winning author, Nikki Grimes!
