Author/Illustrator Proposals

AASL is now accepting proposals for author and/or illustrator panelists to participate in AASL21 concurrent sessions being held on Friday, October 22, and Saturday, October 23.

Publishers, publicists, or authors/illustrators may propose panelists for inclusion in programming. The AASL National Conference author co-chairs will review proposals and create sessions based on the submissions. 

To be considered as a panelist for a concurrent session, the author/illustrator or their publisher must be an exhibitor or participant of the AASL Bookshelf program at the 2021 AASL National Conference. Publishers, publicists, or authors/illustrators may submit proposals prior to booking, but space must be contracted before an author is confirmed as a concurrent session panelist.

All questions regarding author programming at the AASL National Conference should be directed to Jen Habley at or (800) 545-2433, ext. 4383.
