The Gift of Serendipity

Serendipity 2014 AnnouncementStuck for a gift idea? How about a ticket to Serendipity: Children’s Literature in a Digital Age.

Saturday, March 8 2014 | UBC Education Building | 8am-4pm (lunch is included).

From practical advice on using literature-based apps with children to learning how authors and illustrators are using social media and electronic publishing, Serendipity 2014 is a must-attend event for educators, librarians, researchers and literature lovers looking to the future of books for young people.

We have invited presenters that are not only at the forefront of the rapidly-evolving world of technology and children’s books, but are also dynamic, engaging and will leave you inspired and full of ideas:

  • Paul Zelinsky (@paulozelinsky): Caldecott-winning illustrator of over two dozen books
  • Arthur Slade (@arthurslade): Governor-general’s award-winning author
  • John Schumacher (@MrSchuReads): Library Journal Mover and Shaker, elementary school teacher-librarian, blogger, 2014 Newbery Committee member
  • Travis Jonker (@100scopenotes): School Library Journal blogger, elementary school teacher-librarian, 2014 Caldecott Committee member
  • Tim Federle (@TimFederle): Author of Tequlia Mockingbird, Better Nate Than Ever and the forthcoming sequel Five, Six, Seven, Nate! (January 2014)

Our last Roundtable event sold out and we anticipate this one will too.
Space is limited so register today!
