Children’s Authors and Illustrators

I met the author of the picture book,  Perfect Timing this year at the Southern Book Festival.  Her book is about a slave who became a jockey during the Reconstruction. Patsi Trollinger is available for author visits to schools where she shares a number of connections in history as well as explaining the writing process.  She lives in Lexington, KY; check out her website by clicking on her name.

More authors of children’s books and illustrators who live in Kentucky and Tennessee can be found at their website. They are available for school visits.

The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is a national organization of writers and illustrators. A data base of authors and how to reach them is included. You might find an author near you!
