What is happening at this year’s conference?
The conference will kick off on September 25, 2020 with the annual business meeting and TASL Awards. Saturday, September 26 will kick off bright and early with the pre-conference exhibit hall and Coffee Con.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from Alice Faye Duncan, Scott Reintgen, Dr. Kristen Mattson, former AASL president and ALA Policy Corp member Steven Yates, Kelly Starling Lyons, and Tiffany Jewell, as well as a host of our talented TASL members! You’ll not only earn 6 hours of professional development, but this is our chance to learn together, connect, and return to our schools full of ideas and feeling refreshed and energized to do the work to support our students and school communities!
You can also enjoy a special edition of Book Joy Live with Mr. Schu with author/ illustrator Oge Mora and author Veera Hiranandani during our Happy Hour on Friday, September 25, following the annual TASL Awards and our annual business meeting.
Connect with local authors and illustrators during our Coffee-Con panels, featuring Alice Faye Duncan, Susan Eaddy, Jessica Young, Rita Lorraine Hubbard, Kristin O’Donnell Tubb, Jamie Sumner, Stephanie Faris, Caroline Brooks DuBois, Sharon Cameron, and Andrew Maraniss!
