Mazza Summer Institute

Tomorrow is the first day of the Mazza Summer Institute here in good old Findlay, Ohio.  It is a week long conference that features, honors, and highlights children's book authors and illustrators.  This year the key note speakers will be Janet Stevens, Susan Stevens Crummel, Carmen Bernier-Grand, Daniel Yaccarino, Boris Kulikov, Florence and Wendell Minor, Mary Higgins Clark, Loreen Leedy, David Diaz, Peter McCarty, and Bruce Degen.  The conference is always a fun filled week with participants from across the country.  If you haven't ever heard of the Mazza Museum, take a look at this link.  The museum is a one of a kind spot that has thousands of original work by illustrators of children's books.  For those of you not coming this year, you might want to consider it another time.

I'm not far from Findley - maybe 2 hours, or so. I'll definitely check it out for next year. Thanks for posting this. Renee
