We recently returned from the Book Blogger Convention in New York. What a terrific, well-planned event. But it seems Book Bloggers have a need to connect. What better place to do it that at the Fourth Annual Kidlitosphere Conference.
Children's and young adult book bloggers will convene at Open Book, 1011 Washington Avenue, South Minneapolis, MN, on Saturday, October 23, 2010. According to their website, "Open Book is a space for everyone, a meeting place or quiet sanctuary, a destination for all who are interested in or inspired by the literary and book arts." What a perfect venue for a booklovers convention!
In the past the conference has been held in Chicago, Portland, and Washington DC. It rotates to allow more people to attend. A big round of applause goes to this year's committee--Andrew Karre (Carolrhoda), Ben Barnhart (Milkweed Editions) and Brian Farrey (Flux)--who are planning this year's event.
