Literature Conference

Did you know that Ms. Powers traveled to Bellingham, Washington last month for a Children’s Literature conference at Western Washington University?  It was very exciting to hear authors and illustrators speak about their creative process! It was an amazing, wonderful, magical weekend.  Plus, I got to spend time with a lifelong friend, Sherri, who I’ve known since Jr. High.

The weekend’s authors were Cynthia Lord, Melissa Sweet, Peter Brown and Gene Luen Yang (there they are from left to right below).  Mr. Yang was recently named the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature!  How far would you travel to hear your favorite authors speak?

Below, the first photo shows the question and answer time at the end of the day’s session.

There’s Ms. Powers getting a book signed by Mr. Yang!  He even drew a little picture in the book!
