Sent on behalf of Heather McNeil:
Mark your calendars, and save the date, for the Central Oregon Early Literacy Conference! The keynote speaker, and workshop presenter, is award-winning author Mem Fox. Many of Mem's wonderful picture books have all the rhythm, rhyme and repetition that make for a perfect book for learning to read. Her adult book, Reading Magic, is filled with anecdotes and advise just right for parents and care providers. So come hear Mem entertain you with her clever wit, Australian charm, and extensive knowledge on early literacy. The conference will be at the Eagle Crest Resort on May 9, 2009, from 8:30-4:30. Registration is $50 through April 1, and then will increase to $75, so register soon. The rooms at Eagle Crest are $90. The website for registration is at www.coliteracyconference.org. Be sure to register not only for the conference, but also for 2 of the 8 break-out sessions on topics such as creative play, science, gender in children's literature, storytelling and book selection. And please pass along the information to others who might be interested.
