Edit to my speaking engagements

I had to edit my earlier post and delete the speaking engagement I had posted about the UVU Forum on Children's Literature that was supposed to happen in only two weeks.

I'm very sad about this. I've worked on putting on this conference with some of my colleagues for nearly 10 years now never taking a dime for any of our work. We do it because we LOVE children's literature and we want to help the writers and illustrators in this community along. However, because of low registrations (due to various reasons under the control of only UVU), UVU's Conferences and Workshops has chosen to take over and change the format of the forum. We (the actual conference organizers) don't agree with the changes, any can not support this conference any longer.

So this is my sad farewell to the UVU Forum on Children's Literature as we knew it.
