Webster University Children’s Literature Conference

This weekend I autographed books at the Webster University Children’s Literature Conference. It’s a really great opportunity for authors and educators to connect here in St. Louis, MO. There were several other authors here at the conference, and I got a chance to have a wonderful conversation with Patricia McKissack, a very well-known author who also lives in St. Louis. She visited my college children’s lit class when I was a student, and I hadn’t seen her in a long time. I love getting a chance to talk with other authors and teachers because most of the time I am working alone in my studio making my books. It’s fun to hear what the teachers would like to read and how different authors and illustrators approach the process. Thanks, Webster!
