Welcome and Introduction: Lin Oliver and Stephen Mooser

SCBWI co-founder Lin Oliver delivers opening remarks.
As Lin Oliver welcomed us to this 41st annual conference, she shared some great statistics:
  • There are 1,234 attendees from around the world.
  • People have come from as far as Egypt and Ukraine.
  • But no one from either of the Dakotas made it. 
As is our tradition, the faculty introduced themselves with a single word. Sonya Sones, who writes YA novels in verse, was really naughty. Her word was penis [redacted]. She did make a quick getaway in her fantastic Converse sneakers.

You can feel the excitement in the room--and here we go with Arthur Levine!
