Several members of the Cybils team will be attending this year’s Kidlitosphere Conference. KidLitCon will be held in Sacramento, CA on October 10th and 11th. We hope that you’ll join us! Here’s a brief overview of the conference, from the KidLitCon website: “KidLitCon is a gathering of people who blog about children’s and young adult books, including librarians, authors, teachers, parents, booksellers, publishers, and readers. Attendees share a love of children’s books, as well as a determination to get the right books into young readers’ hands. People attend KidLitCon to talk about issues like the publisher/blogger relationship, the benefits and pitfalls of writing critical reviews, and overcoming blogger burnout. People also attend KidLitCon for the chance to spend time face to face with kindred spirits, other adults who care passionately for children’s and YA literature.
This year’s theme for KidLitCon is: Blogging Diversity in Young Adult and Children’s Lit: What’s Next?”
Doesn’t that sound like fun? KidLitCon is a relatively small conference, and a wonderful venue for meeting other bloggers (including, as mentioned above, several members of the Cybils organizing team). This year’s lineup of sessions looks particularly strong, too (though the final proposal has not yet been released).
