Hello CBIGer's

Thought I would pass this along as David sent out the invite to us all:)  If you can make it, please let us know how it went!

I would like to invite you, your colleagues, and students to the 21st Annual HUBBS Children’s Literature Conference on Saturday, February 23, 2013, starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Schulze Hall Auditorium (University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis campus).

This year we are proud to feature authors Jacqueline Woodson (website) and David LaRochelle (website).

The annual Hubbs Children’s Literature Conference provides an opportunity for parents, teachers, students, librarians and others interested in children’s literature to share information and learn how to better meet the educational needs of youth. Sponsored by St. Thomas’ School of Education in the university’s College of Education, Leadership & Counseling and supported by an endowment from Margaret and Ronald Hubbs, who were advocates for literacy in Minnesota and provided funds for the St. Thomas libraries’ children’s literature collection.
