Special Invitation to Schools, Libraries, and Community Organizations! Children's Reading Connection is building this pilot intiative to share with others.

Peter H. Reynolds to Speak at Plum Creek Children’s Literacy Festival

Peter H. Reynolds to Speak at Plum Creek Children’s Literacy Festival in Nebraska on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. in the Weller Auditorium.

Plum Creek Children’s Literacy Festival was founded in 1996 and seeks to encourage a love of reading, writing and books by bringing nationally renowned authors and illustrators to Nebraska.

New York Times best-selling author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds (“The Dot,” “The Word Collector,” “Judy Moody”) will talk about creating bravely in his session “One Brave Dot.”  “I just can’t draw.” These words, uttered by a 1st grader nearly twenty years ago, inspired Peter’s mission to urge all of us to “make our mark” bravely. While his book, “The Dot” (which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year) is about art and a great art teacher, the book is a ultimately a metaphor for being brave enough to take that first brave step and see where it takes us. Peter’s newest books “Happy Dreamer” and “The Word Collector” dare us to keep positive, keep dreaming and keep finding powerful words to help express what we are thinking, feeling and dreaming. Peter will share a sneak peek of his upcoming book, “Say Something!” which reminds readers that the world needs our voice, all voices. In a world where a few loud, boomy voices drown out the more nuanced voices, marginalized voices, this book is a rallying cry for all of us to share what we believe and how we’ll move the world to a better place.

What: Plum Creek Children's Literacy Festival

Where: Concordia University in Nebraska

When: Saturday, Oct. 6 (adult conference)

Time: 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. in the Weller Auditorium
