Georgia Children's Book Awards and Conference on Children's Literature

I am so excited!  I just got my email confirmation for the Children's Literature Conference at University of Georgia in Athens.  Last year was my first year to attend and it was so much fun!  I cannot wait to go again.


This year I signed up for an author workshop with Jennifer L. Holm, author of the Babymouse books.  I don't remember having the option to sign up for an author workshop last year, but I am very happy to have the opportunity to attend the workshop this year, and it was only $10 extra! Can't beat that.

I really wanted to present this year, but time got away from me so I didn't get anything ready in time to submit.  Proposals for presentations have to be sent in by like December and I certainly did not have anything ready back then. But it's something for me to work on for next year.

I am going to be presenting at our next Media Specialists Consortium for our area RESA, so maybe I can use some of that presentation for the conference next year.  We'll see.

Anyone else going to the Children's Lit Conference?  Maybe we can meet up.  =)


  1. Hi Jo! I will be there! I hope that we can meet in person! I will be presenting two sessions this year: one session on the new picture book nominees and one session on augmented reality and children's books.

    1. That is so exciting! I will have to check out at least one of your sessions. It would be fun to meet up. Can't wait for all the fun! =)
