Next Meeting: April 20, 2009

Our next meeting is fast approaching. On Monday, April 20, at 7:30 pm, at the Nellie McClung Library at Cedar Hill Rd. & McKenzie Ave. (back entrance, library is closed), we will hear Diane Swanson, a very prolific writer of children's non-fiction, speak.

Diane Swanson is a full-time author who gets her inspiration from the natural world. Swanson encourages young writers to "Write what really excites you. No matter what your subject is, if you let your excitement shine through your words, you'll grab your readers' interest." Creating engaging and factual books for children is definitely what excites Diane Swanson.

Our last meeting is Monday, May 25 and will be a presentation by Mark Tougas, author and illustrator of Mechanimals, winner of the first Bolen Book Prize last November, 2008. More information to follow.
