California School Librarians Association Conference: Rohnert Park, 2017

My fellow MG writers Jennifer Lynn Alvarez, Guardian Herd Series, Jill Diamond, Lou Lou and Pea and the Mural Mystery and I were warmly welcomed on Saturday by a room of school librarians passionate that their students should not skip middle grade books for YA: the topic of our talk. That was followed by an enjoyable author mix and mingle and an evening with award winning author Kristin Cashore. Wow, what a day celebrating the people who strive to get great books into the hands of great kids!
