Keynote Speaker Matt de la Peña: Working Class Writer
"You are what you do when nobody is watching you"
Keynote speaker Matt de la Peña gave us a brief history of his journey from reluctant reader to published author (and avid reader).
Matt's books share stories of identity, class, code-switching and being bi-racial. He empathized that our profession is all about patience and encouraged us to "embrace the possibility."
For more information on Matt, and his work, you can visit his
2012 annual conference
