This celebration is an annual workshop for educators, librarians, student teachers and children's literature enthusiasts, with an aim to internationalize statewide reading curriculum. Each author will discuss the stories that they have written and highlight the work they feel is most suitable for classroom discussion. Two authors will speak in the morning and two following lunch. In conclusion, we will have a reception and book signing.

This event is sponsored by the Wisconsin International Outreach Consortium (WIOC) in observance of International Education Week 2009. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
