Jane Yolen is Added to the SCBWI Winter Conference Lineup...

The 11th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference already has a terrific lineup--and it just got a little better. SCBWI announced yesterday that author Jane Yolen has been added to the roster.

Jane, who's been called the Hans Christian Andersen of America and the Aesop of the twentieth century, and is the award-wining author of numerous children's books, fantasy, and science fiction, including Owl Moon, The Devil's Arithmetic, and How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, will offer the closing keynote address.

I remember seeing Jane speak from a wheelchair at the 2006 SCBWI LA conference after a night in the emergency room. She still knocked our socks off!

There's still time to register for the SCBWI event--click here. Early registration rates apply until January 4th.

If you can't make it, you can follow the conference as it's happening with full SCBWI TEAM BLOG coverage on the Official SCBWI Conference Blog.

And if you'd like some Jane Yolen wisdom you can carry around in your bag, check out her wonderful book Take Joy.

She is amazing- and I have admired her for many, many years! She's just an incredible talent.


I loved last year's conference, and I am HIGHLY recommending it to everyone I come in contact with.

You never know what could happen there. Right?

This is wonderful news! I absolutely love Jane's books - Encounter is one of my favorites. Thanks for passing this along. ;-)

Great news! I'm so excited and looking forward to hearing her speak.

Jane would be a very interesting addition to the SCBWI line-up. I loved "Wizard's Hall" and was astounded at the similarities of Rowling's first book that came out a few years later.
