Registration extended! WWU Children's Lit Conference

Two presenters for the upcoming WWU Children’s Lit Conference  just won major awards!

Brian Pinkney’s wife, Andrea Davis Pinkney, won the Coretta Scott King award for Hand in Hand: Ten Black Men Who Changed America, but he did the illustrations so we are very pleased! Katherine Applegate of Animorphs fame, who has written over 212 books in her career, was just awarded the Newbery Medal for The One and Only Ivan.  

In honor of this timely news, early-bird registration for the conference has hereby been extended until MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4! Come help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of the conference, and come interact with these award-winning authors and illustrator, as well as fellow faculty members Susan Campbell Bartoletti and Michael Grant. 

Conference date: February 23, 8am-3:30pm. Cost: $85
