Our Keynote Speaker…

I am very excited to announce that our keynote speaker for our July 17 & 18, 2010 conference will be author Margaret Peterson Haddix!  Read on to learn more about Margaret and her presentation:

Margaret Peterson Haddix is the New York Times-bestselling    author of more than twenty-five books for kids and teens, including  the Missing series, the Shadow Children series, Running Out of  Time, Double Identity, Palace of Mirrors and Claim to Fame. She  also wrote the tenth 39 Clues book, Into the Gauntlet, which is due  out in August. Her website is www.haddixbooks.com.

“Along for the Ride: Taking Readers Where Your  Imagination Takes You”—Margaret Peterson Haddix

So you’ve dreamed up an incredible plot and/or extraordinary  characters and/or a fascinating setting. How do you make your  readers understand and fall in love with your story, too? And how  do you fill in parts of the story that your imagination is still a little  vague about?
