Authors & Illustrators

A directory of Minnesota authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults, who present programs in libraries, schools, and community agencies.

The Minnesota Authors and Illustrators project updates the inventory of Minnesota writer resources Authors and Illustrators as Program Resources: Minnesota Creators of Juvenile Books by Doris Pagel. This book has been a major educational resource for teachers around the state who want to get published authors and illustrators into their classrooms. The Minnesota Authors and Illustrators project was funded by a grant from the federal Library Services and Technology Act.

This Authors and Illustrators database serves to make librarians, teachers, and other community leaders aware of authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults, who present programs in libraries, schools, and community agencies, as well as speak at conferences. Each author/illustrator provided the information that appears under each of the headings. We are indebted to Doris Pagel who originally collected and published information on Minnesota Authors and Illustrators in the first two editions of her book in 1991 and 1997.
