The University of Alabama, April 23rd - 24th.

From the announcement about the conference: "Registration is limited so hurry before you miss your chance to interact with nationally acclaimed Latino/a children's and young adult author's and illustrators, and to network with professionals serving the literacy needs of Latino children in classrooms, libraries, and educational settings around the U.S."

I have been lucky enough to hear Jamie Campbell Naidoo, the conference's coordinator several times & he is a leading expert on Latino Children's Literature. I am sure it will be a great event!

Susan, really?? Oh, if you go you MUST report back; or if you know someone who is going.

Wendy, there are so many good conferences and so little time & money. I'm hoping someone out there in the blogosphere goes, represents the blogging part of the lit world, and reports back.
