    Sorry to bother you, but I signed up for the Kidlit Summer School webinar, but I never received the password for access. I’ve been out of town and would love to have access. Can you help?

      Hi Mary,

      If you registered to watch this particular webinar live, you will receive a link to view it on Monday or Tuesday. We don’t send out the links too early because they tend to get buried in email inboxes if we do! 😉 So you have not received this link yet. You haven’t missed anything. If you registered to watch a replay of this webinar instead of watching it live, you will receive that link on Wednesday.


  2. Thanks for a great lineup. Appreciate this and all the other elements that make up Kid Lit Summer School 2015!
