Dear USBBY Members,
With the arrival of Spring, we look forward to renewed hope for better times. We are looking ahead to March 4-6, 2022 for the IBBY Regional Conference in Nashville, Tennessee at Vanderbilt University. The call for presentations and poster sessions is now on the front page of the USBBY website: www.usbby.org
USBBY will be co-sponsoring a session at ALA’s virtual June convention, June 23-29, 2021. We are grateful to Caroline Ward and Ellen Myrick for planning the session, “Read Around the World: Innovative International Publishing in the US.” Caroline Ward will moderate a panel discussion with four independent international publishers from Cassava Republic Press, Lantana Publishing, Tiny Owl, and Gecko Press. The program will be pre-recorded and available for “on demand” viewing throughout the conference for all registered participants.
