KidLitCon starts today in Austin!! I'll be there with a whole slew of amazing children's lit bloggers. I am sitting on a panel with Leila Roy of Bookshelves of Doom, Sheila Ruth of Wands and Worlds and is the Publisher Liaison for the Cybils Awards, and Lee Wind who is a writer and speaker on many kidlit topics but especially diversity and tolerance, and he blogs at I'm Here, I'm Queer. What the Hell Do I Read? as well as the SCBWI blog. I feel honored to talk about the importance of kidlit blogging with these fine folks!
There is still time to register and join the fun. I'll be giving away boxes of books that were donated by the awesome folks at BookPeople, and our own Cynthia Leitich Smith will be keynoting. She has an award winning kidlit blog and seriously one of the most knowledgeable people round these parts. <3 p="">
