Celebrating and promoting our Fall 2016 list at FSG. I'm especially excited to present Gertie's Leap to Greatness by Kate Beasley (illus. by Jillian Tamaki) on the BEA Middle-Grade Buzz Panel and to gush over the launch of a new middle-grade series, Lou Lou and Pea and the Mural Mystery by Jill Diamond (illus. by Lesley Vamos).
I'm excited to speak on a panel at the Kweli Conference and mentor young writers and artists of color. Register here for what should be a fantastic day!
"Kweli's spring conference is an excellent opportunity for writers and illustrators of color to learn, get inspired and network with others in the industry. The day will include a keynote address by award-winning author, EDWIDGE DANTICAT. Our panels and workshops will cover topics from the craft of writing to the business of writing. Top editors, agents, and authors will discuss crucial steps to help launch a writer's career and offer carefully considered manuscript critiques. We will end the day with an evening reception."
