Romancing the Stars Online is a chance to discover what books our local and other guest authors and illustrators have been creating for children and young adults in the past year. Each creator will give a short introduction to their latest publication. You have a chance to get inside information about the creation of the books and make contact with potential presenters for your school or library.
