Picture books! A few hundred words, dolled up with pictures, aimed at the youngest of the young — obviously simple, right? Then why are they so hard to sell? Let's talk about the subtleties that make a picture book manuscript worthy of becoming a book. There will be a lecture, a couple of interactive brain-storming activities, and plenty of time for Q&A. Join us!

Liz Garton Scanlon is the author of numerous beloved books for young people, including the highly-acclaimed, Caldecott-honored picture book All the World, illustrated by Marla Frazee, and her debut novel for middle grade readers, The Great Good Summer. Her 2017 books are Bob, Not Bob, co-authored by Audrey Vernick and illustrated by Matt Cordell, and Another Way to Climb a Tree, illustrated by Hadley Hooper. Scanlon is a faculty member at Vermont College of Fine Arts and a frequent presenter at schools, festivals and conferences. She grew up in Colorado and Wisconsin, and now lives with her husband and two daughters in Austin, Texas.
