Boston-Area Kid Lit Gatherings Winter 2011

If you're getting New England cabin fever and are longing to see actual people in real life instead of profile pictures who tweet, we have two possibilities for you this winter.

First, if you're anywhere close to Boston, you're invited to an informal schmooze/tweetup/Boston Kid Lit get-together on Monday, January 31st from 6-8 pm.

We're meeting at Andala Cafe in Central Square, in their big space downstairs. Andala is near the Central Square T stop on the red line, 286 Franklin St, Central Square, Cambridge, MA 02139. If you're driving, look for metered lots on Bishop Allen Dr. (parallel to Mass Ave) as well as the Green Street parking garage at the corner of Green and Pearl. The garage costs $1.50 per hour.

No need to register--just show up. Bring a friend or two. We'll provide nametags, you provide the schmoozing. Hope to see you there.

Second, if you're anywhere near the western suburbs or central Massachusetts and don't want to come all the way into the city,  author Kristine Assselin has just the thing for you. On Tuesday, 2/15, 7 p.m., you're invited to gather with other Kid/YA lit aficionados at the Westford Grille, 142 Littleton Road, in Westford, MA. RSVP via Twitter to @KristineAsselin.
