Northwoods Children's Book Conference
Sept. 30 - Oct. 1, 2010

Every year, we look forward to our time together as a community of people with a shared passion for children's books. A marvelous synergy happens as we participate in learning new information and techniques and feel the camaraderie that grows among the attendees and faculty.

We have a great opportunity this year, due to the transition of ownership at Telemark, to try a new conference venue--we think you'll be delightfully surprised with our choice. Just a short way down the road from Telemark is a resort with a beautiful lakeside setting. Aptly named, Lakewoods Resort (www.lakewoodsresort.com) is nestled between gently wooded hills and the stunning Lake Namakagon. Call the reservations clerk (800-930-6657) to ask lodging options for individual or groups.

This year we're excited about outstanding keynote speaker Anita Silvey and a faculty of top-notch experts who will bring new ideas and information to carry us through another year. Our latest faculty additions: Seibert Award-winning author Catherine Thimmesh and beloved author and illustrator Nancy Carlson. The experience and accomplishments of these two book creators make them an irresistible enhancement presenters: Muskadee L. Montano, Merri V. Lindgren, Megan Schliesman, Marsha Qualey, Lee Ann Landstrom, Karen Shragg, Laura Purdie Salas, Steve Palmquist, and Vicki Palmquist. Candy Fleming and Eric Rohmann are being honored by IBBY in South Korea this weekend. We wish them the best and look forward to having this duo participate in a future conference.
