Nancy Stewart Presenting at Illinois Reading Council Conference

It is my distinct pleasure to be a presenter for the second year and a featured author at the Author's Luncheon at the Illinois Reading Council Conference in Springfield, Illinois, March 15 to 17.  I'd like to thank the organizers publicly for this honor.

The title of this year's conference is:  Literacy in the Land of Lincoln.  It should prove to be another successful event where teachers, librarians, authors, editors and publishers come together for the greater good of children's reading, from enhancing their skills to pleasure in enjoying their favorite books.

The title of my presentation for Friday, March 16, is: Kids Can (Write a Picture Book!).  I will present a power point and discuss how kids can plan, research, write and assemble their own picture book and have fun in the doing!

Several of my writers' critique group, Bookends, will again organize and run the SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) booth.  I look forward to seeing what visual treats are in store for us this year!
