Young Author’s Conference

The 2013 Young Author’s Conference is set for 8:45 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 16 at Schmucker Middle School. This year’s conference will feature the talented children’s author Rebecca Kai Dotlich.

Rebecca is a poet and picture book author whose work has been featured on Reading Rainbow, has appeared in magazines such as Ladybug and Highlights, and in numerous textbooks and collections.

Along with hearing from Rebecca, students and parents will be laughing as nationally-known family entertainer Chris Fascione brings children’s stories to life with this high spirited performance, Juggling Funny Stories. In addition, students will work in group sessions where they will share their own writing pieces.

The cost per child is $4 and registration deadline is Feb. 13, 2013. For more information about the conference, please contact Christy Campbell at Students must be accompanied by a parent.
