I leave today for KidLitCon 2011 in Seattle, a conference for bloggers of children’s and YA lit. By this time last year we hadn’t even started the blog, so this will be quite the experience for me. I’m looking forward to the panels and visiting Seattle, and above all, meeting like-minded enthusiasts. Needless to say, I’ll be blogging the conference highlights. Perhaps, as a challenge, I’ll try to summarize the events without ever using the word “blog…”
Children’s Literatureis the purpose of this blog. We mainly focus on middle grade books aimed at 8-12 year olds, but jaw-dropping YA and picture books are also fair game.
