The 2018 WNY Children's Book Expo was another incredible success! Thank you for your support as thousands of students were reached through school-based author visits, KidsLit week, or by coming to the expo to meet one of nearly 40 participating authors. It took many months of planning and a great deal of support from community partners, like Medaille College and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York, but we hope that you had a wonderful experience sharing your love of reading with your children, and meeting some of the authors whose books you read.

To encapsulate the day and the importance of this event, this video, created by student Danielle Lipford and instructor Tom Vetter of Medaille College, showcases what the WNY Children's Book Expo is all about. We hope that you enjoyed your time spent at this year's expo, and we look forward to seeing you again for the 2019 WNY Children's Book Expo on Saturday, November 9th.
