Conferences, joint sessions, author/illustrator panels, Skype appearances, lit festivals, committees, webcasts, congresses, book signings, board meetings, school outreach, ICBD, and more - book people crave and thrive on connection. USBBY/IBBY is defined by it.
In this issue of Bridges, Cynthia Leitich Smith describes how literary connection took her from mentor to mentee and back again. Brenda Dales relates how illustrators from all over the world, including three from the U.S., make connections to new and familiar audiences in Bratislava. Pat Mora shares exciting news on the Día front, helping to connect children and books all over the United States; and Anne Pellowski reflects on the connections her Cloth Books Project has fostered all over the world. Shanetia Clark, Patrick Gall and Karen Perry check in about recent conference highlights; and this issue contains updated information about the World Congress in Moscow, September 2020, and the Regional Conference in Nashville, March 2021.
