The late author Paula Danziger
I'm back, dear readers, after eight days in New York and back to back conferences. (You'll hear more about each of them later. And if you haven't checked out the SCBWI TEAM BLOG coverage of the Annual Winter Conference, click here!)

My post-conference post today is to ask you to spread the work that...

the Amber Brown Grand applicaton deadline

has been extended to March 1st, 2011!

The grant, named after a beloved character created by author Paula Danziger, brings a guest author to a school that cannot normally afford to do so.

Here's information on the grant from

One school will be rewarded with an all expense paid, full day visit by a well respected children’s author or illustrator. The chosen school will also receive a $250 stipend to assist in creating this memorable event to celebrate reading, learning, and children’s literature and $250 worth of books by the visiting author. Additionally, one runner up school will be selected and rewarded with books valued at $250.

If you know of a school that would qualify, please send them here for the application.
