2 days until Kidlit Con!
What is Kidlit Con? It’s an annual, nation conference for “kid lit” bloggers, writers, illustrators, and publishers to gather and talk about blogging and children’s literature.
This year, it’s in Minneapolis! Specifically, at Open Book, which has a soft spot in the heart of this Twin Cities literary geek and former Milkweed Editions intern.
I’ve been debating about whether I can spare the time and money to attend… but I scheduled class assignments so I wouldn’t have papers to grade this weekend, arranged my language exam for tomorrow, and am putting in a lot of studying overtime tonight so that I can make the trip.
