I listened to the Marion Dane Bauer’s recent presentation on http://www.writingforchildrenlive.com/ on picture books. It was wonderful! What this lady doesn’t know about picture books isn’t worth knowing. Her presentation is now available for sale through the website. And she’s speaking again this Wednesday, September 26th, 7 pm on the same site. This time her topic will be POINT OF VIEW AND PSYCHIC DISTANCE IN FICTION
FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. Check it out. It’s free.
This website has a series of author presentations lined up. My first one will be November 14th at 7 pm. Here’s the info on that.
