NE Illustrator Events in November

I have all of these events rolling around in my head as things I want to do. Since I can’t be in 4 places at once, I’m going to let all of you know so, we can get folks at all of these events. [edited] Here is a blog post, which I will continue to update as I find more events for this month, of all the Kidlit/Illustration events that I know of for the month of November happening in New England. With hints to big events in December.
