Virginia homeschooling friends, save the date!
Where: The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, Virginia
When: March 23-24, 2018
What: Virginia Homeschoolers 2018 Conference & Resource Fair
I’ll be the keynote speaker! I’m speaking on a number of topics including tidal homeschooling, habits, creativity (Makers Gotta Mess), and of course books & comics! Virginia Homeschoolers is a fantastic conference—when we lived in Crozet, I always eagerly looked forward to attending even when I wasn’t giving a workshop. 😉 I’m thrilled to be returning to my old Va. stomping grounds.
Mid-Atlantic friends, I would really love to see you there!
The talented Roxyanne Young took these photos of my talk on Middle-Grade and Chapter Books at SCBWI-San Diego last weekend and kindly gave me permission to use them. My school visit/speaker page needs a massive updating and I’m so grateful to have some recent images to include.
Apparently I talk with my hands a lot? What’s funniest to me is that this Boston Bay slide was onscreen for barely a minute. That’s an awful lot of glasses-waving going on there.
The rest of my slides were all about other people’s books—my favorite things to talk about, as you know. Here’s a taste:
