Lupine Submissions

Every year, the Lupine committee meets to select the best picture books and youth books with a Maine connection published that year. What is a Maine connection, you ask?  The author must be from Maine or live in Maine for at least part of the year and/or the book must be set at least partially in Maine.  

If you would like to submit your book for consideration, please send review copies to the Lupine Chair (name and address below). Ideally, if you could provide 7 review copies, that would make it easier for the committee.  If not, we understand and we can share! Review copies must be received by the end of November to give the committee time to read and consider each title.
