A Special Sunday post to share with you all exciting News about the 2010 Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators Winter Conference in New York City...
author of over 300 books (Including Fantasy and Picture Books like "How do Dinosaurs Go to School?") and winner of The Caldecott Medal, two Nebula Awards, a National Book Award nomination and SCBWI's own Golden Kite Award (among a ton of others...) will be the closing Keynote speaker on Sunday, January 31st, 2010!
It is an amazing opportunity to hear a legend in the world of Children's Literature!
Early Registration for the Conference ends January 4, 2010 - and if you are a writer or illustrator for children and Teens, it would be a wonderful Holiday present for yourself - and a great way to start off the 2010 leg of your career!
Stay tuned at this blog for more pre-conference scoops as well as exclusive interviews with the Awe-inspiring Author Jacqueline Woodson - who will be presenting the Saturday Lunchtime Keynote and the multi-talented Laurent Linn, Art Director, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, who will be leading a break out session called "The Real Deal About Visual Story Telling." All that and much more from me and the rest of SCBWI Team Blog...
Great stuff ahead, and hope to see you at the Winter Conference!
