Just wanted to briefly share two fantastic children’s lit events in the Twin Cities in February. These are awesome events for teachers (and both earn CEUs), writers, and kidlit lovers. They are each $40.
First up, on Feb. 1, is Books for Breakfast! I love this book bonanza event and am so happy to be one of the authors for it again this year. Here’s the lineup of authors and illustrators. Whee!
And then on Feb. 15, I’ll be in the audience at the Hubbs Children’s Literature Conference. I can’t wait to hear the talks by Nikki Grimes and Bao Phi. Nikki is always powerful and inspiring, and this will be my first time hearing poet and picture book author Bao, though he’s local and I’ve met him several times.
If you’re in this region, these events are so worth going to. Hope to see you there!
