2021 MOTM Bookstore

Online Conference Bookstore

Mark your calendar for the SCBWI Kansas/Missouri Event

November 1-6, 2021

Our wonderful conference artwork created by our own Katie O’Malley!


Our Online Conference Bookstore will be provided by independent bookstores throughout our region. Choose from the list of neighborhood bookstores below, and order your books on-line, directly through them. Booksellers provide at-store pickup or home delivery. Since no group code is necessary, feel free to use any bookstore.


At every conference webinar we will have a random drawing for one lucky attendee to win the title of their choice, from the indie bookstore of their choice, from those listed on our Online Conference Bookstore.

Published Members – please send Nicki Jacobsmeyer,, your contact and book information (see below) so your book can be chosen by our winners! Thank you.

If you are an SCBWI member attending the conference, we will be happy to list your book on our webpage. This opportunity is available to SCBWI members only. Both PAL (traditionally published authors) and self-published authors may request ONE of their titles to be listed on the conference bookstore webpage. If you have a book that is not out yet but is upcoming for 2021, you’re welcome to select that title to submit. This will allow you to market your book before it hits shelves and conference attendees can pre-order.

To participate, please email Nicki Jacobsmeyer at
In your email please include the following information:

  • Your Name
  • Your Phone Number
  • Your Website
  • Title of the Book
  • Book Cover picture (JPEG)
  • ISBN # (If available)
  • Publisher name (if available)

There also will be titles by faculty authors / illustrators and titles suggested by faculty members listed on the webpage. There’s no better holiday gift than a book!

Thank you to the staff at our regional independent bookstores!
