Read Local for NESCBWI


New England SCBWI’s new page READ LOCAL will help you find children’s books written and illustrated by talented SCBWI members in the New England area.

There you can find links to everything you need to bring New England books and their creators to your classroom and/or library, including the websites for many local writers and illustrators.

Read Local’s goal is to team up with book lovers all over the region to strengthen our local reading community—and foster a life-long love of reading—in New England kids.

The authors and illustrators featured on this website live in the New England region and write/illustrate wonderful books for children. They are thrilled to work with teachers, librarians, and readers of all ages! Find out more at
