The Brigham Young University Symposium on Books for Young Readers will convene Thursday and Friday, July 12 and 13, at the Provo City Library at Academy Square in Provo, Utah.
All interested librarians, teachers, parents and lovers of children’s literature over the age of 13 are invited to attend. Registration is $149 for the full symposium, $109 for the Thursday-only sessions and $79 for the Friday-only sessions.
This year’s symposium will feature presentations by nationally acclaimed authors and illustrators Ann Cannon, Stephen Johnson, David Macaulay, Gary Paulsen, Janette Rallison and Suzanne Fisher Staples.
Each author and illustrator will share his or her unique perspective on children’s literature followed by a short question-and-answer session.
