Black Children’s Books DMV+ (BCB DMV+) is a 4DMV Kids affiliated initiative that launched following the first annual Black Children’s Book Week in February 2022.

BCB DMV+ is your place for children’s books created by black authors from the DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area and beyond. By spotlighting black children’s books published locally, we give you greater access to the authors that write them. For More Info: Download PDF


Black Children’s Book Fest 
Hosted by Black Children’s Books DMV+
Saturday, March 25th 2023

The Writer’s Center;  4508 Walsh St, Bethesda, MD 20815

The purpose of Chapter 1 is to highlight the multitude of black children’s authors in DC, Maryland, Virginia and beyond. We seek to encourage attendees to support participating authors by purchasing their books and engaging in interactive storytimes. 

Although Chapter 1 is based in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase area, we intend to bring authors together from across the DC, Maryland and Virginia metro area. Attendees will engage in live storytimes with coinciding interactive activities, calming exercises in our 4DMV Kids Space, and author meet and greets through The Vending Spot, where they can also purchase a plethora of themed children’s books. Refreshments will be served throughout the event pending sponsorship.
