Library Land Stage at the Missouri Library Assocation Conference 2019:

The Missouri Library Association is calling for proposals for libraries that support authors and storytellers in their communities for the Library Land Stage at the Missouri Library Association Conference 2019 in Kansas City. The Library Land Stage presentations will take place on Thursday, October 4th and Friday, October 5th.

The Library Land Stage will feature authors/storytellers and the libraries they have worked with to share their stories with their local community. The format will be comprised of an interview between the author/storyteller and a library representative on how the library worked to promote the individual and his or her story in the community, a reading or telling of a story by the author or storyteller, and a question and answer round for the audience. Presentations are scheduled to last no longer than 20 minutes.

There are 14 presentation slots open for this event.

This form will be open from April 1, 2019 to May 31, 2019.

All individuals who participate in the Library Land Stage event will need to attend the conference. Authors/Storytellers who are selected to participate in this event can attend the conference with a Single Session Guest Presenter $20.00. MLA cannot pay any costs for presenters associated with participating in the Library Land Stage. Partner libraries can sponsor their author/storyteller, if desired.
