Save March 2 & 3, 2012 For the 16th Annual Charlotte S. Huck Children’s Literature Festival!
Planning for Children’s Literature Festival 2012 is well underway. Award winning featured speakers scheduled for 2012 include: Brian Pinkney, Eric Kimmel, George Ella Lyon, J. Patrick Lewis, Steven Layne, Caroline Arnold, and Kristine O’Connell George.
Why do people come—and keep coming back? Each year, the festival brings together educators, students, illustrators, authors, librarians, editors, and all those interested in children’s literature. In the words of past participants, it is “a small, intimate conference where you can spend time with the authors and illustrators.” “Unrushed.” “A unique opportunity to spend time with others who share a passion for children’s books and their creators.” Plan now to be a part of an exciting weekend filled with the best of children’s books and their creators. As one attendee said, “This conference is great. I never know what will happen, but it is always what I needed. It just keeps getting better and better.”
Call for Proposals: We are now accepting proposals for small group sessions for 2012, including proposals to bring students to meet one of our featured speakers. Small group topics requested by past attendees are listed on the Small Groups page.
Once again the Ayres Hotel is partnering with the University to offer room rate of $59 per night for Festival participants. Call them at 909-335 9024 and start planning your weekend getaway now!
