Calling all illustrators and writers of Children's Books

I'm on the planning committee for a conference sponsored by Utah Valley University (formerly Utah Valley State College) and SCBWI in March (the 20th-21st). We already have the main Keynote Author booked, Kirby Larsen. But, I was just able to book David Small and Sarah Stewart as our Keynote illustrator and picture book author. We are SOOO excited. David has won the Caldecott Medal and the Caldecott Honor Medal. He wrote and illustrated "Imogene's Antlers"...a classic you probably all know. Anyway, Book your calendars and if you are anywhere near Utah in March, you should come. IT'S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC!!!!!
