Speaker – Patsi Barnes Trollinger

             Patsi is the SCBWI Midsouth Assistant Regional Advisor and the author of an award-winning children’s book, Perfect Timing, and numerous magazine articles. She will explain the publishing process and steps to getting published, discuss current trends in children’s books, and provide information about membership in SCBWI.

The program is designed especially for persons interested in becoming authors or illustrators of children’s books. Area teachers and librarians also are invited to attend and learn about author visit programs offered by SCBWI members. A display will feature best-selling children’s books written or illustrated by men and women from Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky. Another display titled, "A Book Is Born," will show the steps (and the disasters) on the road to one book's publication; this includes sample query letters, sample rejection letters, part of a sample contract.

            For more information, contact Patsi Trollinger (trollinger@kycom.net).
