Hey! I'm Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, longtime SCBWI member and mostly-middle grade author of books like 8th Grade Superzero, Someday Is Now, Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey To Tomorrow, and co-author of Two Naomis and Naomis Too. I've never been to the Summer Conference in LA, so I'm especially excited for the 2020 Summer Spectacular! It's virtual this year, so that gives even more of us an opportunity to get in on the trademark abundance of AMAZING that I've heard about for years. I mean...a lineup that includes Jacqueline Woodson, Namrata Tripathi, Kwame Alexander, and Jason Reynolds, to name just a few? Sign me up! OK, I am signed up, actually, and I'll be sharing here and on social media, including tidbits from conversations between legendary kidlit powerhouses Laurie Halse Anderson and Meg Medina, and Judy Blume and Lin Oliver. I mean! But wait...THERE'S MORE! So...sign YOU up! There's still time. Come hang out with me and the Conference Blogging Team; we can enjoy snacks together, and be inspired.
