Now that the kids are back in school (or college for a few of the MCBD team) things are “full steam ahead” with getting ready for Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2019.
First, we’d like to remind everyone of the 2019 date change (and future dates for MCBD as well).
Instead of being “every January 27th,” we are shifting to a “last Friday in January” focus so we don’t interfere with International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This change just felt right and we are glad to make this positive move. So, the next Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2019 will be on January 25, 2019.
