Come study Picture Books in the Appalachian Mountains!

This summer I'll be leading a curated picture book reading workshop (teachers may be able to get credit!) at the gorgeous Hollins University. We have hundreds of picture books to enjoy, including the submissions for the annual Margaret Wise Brown Prize. These are the most recent picture books sent in by publishers each year, so, teachers, you can stay up-to-date on the latest hits! Come immerse yourself in your reading passions, but also enjoy strolls around campus, petting horsey noses, the charming farmers market in downtown Roanoke, and the camaraderie in this bubble of joy we call our home each summer. You'll want to come every year!
Teachers, Librarians, Parents, or Picture Book Passionista, this workshop is for YOU! Here are the details, also available at the HOLLINS WEBSITE:
