“Congratulations on an AMAZING Children's Nonfiction Conference. This was my first time attending, and it was well worth the time and expense. I connected with interesting people in the business and learned a lot—both from conference presenters and from fellow attendees. Plus I came away with several exciting potential opportunities to explore. If you haven't yet attended this terrific conference, I highly recommend you check it out next year.”
“Thank you so much for a FANTASTIC conference. It was the best conference I've ever attended and you can quote me on that! All your work and prep paid off. I enjoyed the diversity of the speakers--from authors to publishers to the president of the NSTA. Just great. “
“This was a very unusual conference that offered tremendous opportunity for a multitude of professionals dealing with a myriad of perspectives to interact and understand the larger picture surrounding children’s nonfiction. I have never attended anything like it before. Thank you for putting it together. I came home renewed and ready to put some new ideas into practice.”
