February 17, 2020

Now for something a little different…do you or educators you work with have an interest (research or otherwise) in early literacy and children’s literature? Did you know that Pitt-Greensburg’s library holds an annual conference on this topic?

The 24th annual Children’s Literature Conference is set for Friday, May 1, 2020 on the campus in Greensburg, PA.

Registration is open, and two award-winning authors will be featured speakers:

Sharon G. Flake
A.S. King
A.S. King

A.S. King, whose novel Dig recently won the 2020 Michael L. Printz Award

Sharon G. Flake, Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent Award Winner

Breakout sessions, lunch and a book signing are also planned for the day.

Attendees typically include K-12 and college educators, librarians, and others engaged with literacy among children and young adults.
