It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood when the ABC Children’s Institute (Ci7) comes to Pittsburgh! From June 26–28, children’s booksellers, authors, illustrators, and publishers from across the country will gather for three days of children’s bookselling education and activities. New additions to the schedule are: a very special workshop with Glory Edim, founder of the Well-Read Black Girl book club program; the publisher sponsor Mix & Mingle; a pre-day packed with an all-day Events University; and the first-ever Children’s Institute quidditch match. But let’s also not forget the reprise of bookseller favorites — local bookstore tours and the second annual book character costume party! Join us for three days of education, networking, and celebration in June.
