Please enter separate submissions for each occurrence of Author/Illustrator appearance in your exhibit booth. (Note: Meet the Authors listings are for appearances in exhibit booths ONLY. Other author appearances, such as "What's Cooking Stage", "Book Buzz", Session Programs, etc. are promoted through those programs.)
