Upcoming Events and Other Updates...
I've posted a list of what I've got scheduled so far in 2021 on my Conferences page. The first event comes up in only two weeks, when I'll be moderating a panel of three children's book editors for the NY SCBWI. This will be held online and is open to all, but you must sign up ahead of time via the link on the Conferences page.
I've also posted dates for this year's first "Crash Course in Children's Book Publishing" at Highlights, beginning in early February, along with tentative dates for additional sessions of the Crash Course, later in the year, and for the Kid's Book Revisions annual retreat.
Wendy McClure has announced that she is leaving Albert Whitman for Sourcebooks, which I've included as one of a couple of items on the Who's Moving Where page.
Lastly, the "young people's" winner for the National Book Award was announced recently, so I've updated that page, and have added a new feature--a link to a list on Bookshop (the new initiative from independent booksellers) of recent NBA young people's winners. I'm building a collection of lists of recommended books on Bookshop, so please let me know what you think of them and if you have any requests.
As always, thank you for your support, and my best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021!
