Welcome to the Indiana Children’s Authors & Illustrators website!  This site is maintained by the Indiana State Library to provide teachers, librarians, and the general public with lists of Indiana authors and illustrators who write for children and young adults. Those listed were either born in Indiana, lived in Indiana for a significant period of time, or currently live in Indiana. In order to be listed on this page, contemporary authors and  illustrators should have a website dedicated to their work. For more historical authors, a link will be provided to their papers or to a quality review of their work, unless a website dedicated to their work is still in existence. A separate page includes a subset of Indiana authors who write for young adults (YA), pre-teens or teens. Many of these authors’ and illustrators’ works can be found in the Indiana Young Readers Center at the Indiana State Library. If you are a new author and want to encourage the Indiana State Library to add your work to their permanent collection, feel free to send two complimentary copies of your books to the Indiana Young Readers Center Librarian. Items are added to the Indiana State Library’s collections at the discretion of the librarians.
