Call for Arkansas Authors

The Arkansas Reading Association's 45th Annual Literacy Conference Rooted in literacy will be held November 16-17, 2017, in Little Rock.  This year we are again planning a special "Arkansas Authors" highlight dedicated solely to promoting a wonderful state resource - our talented children's/ YA  authors!

  • ARA will provide a collaborative Arkansas Author booth space & table in the Exhibit Hall for you and other AR authors to promote/sell/autograph your books throughout the entire conference.
  • AR authors will be included in our AR author panel session on Friday
  • Put you in contact for book sales with Scholastic Book Fairs (if needed)
  • Market and promo of your appearance.  
  • Authors will have a table at the Arkansas Children's Book Awards Celebration Lunch on Friday from 1:00-3:00 pm  to autograph

Our conference attracts nearly 1,000 educators - and meeting authors is a highlight for many of them!  We hope you will be part of our event.

Tentative Schedule will be posted soon on ARA.
