We are excited for the opportunity to Reflect, Refocus, Reconnect, & Rejuvenate! as we come back together at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem for our Oct. 7-9 conference.

The conference will officially begin Thursday, Oct. 7 at 1pm with concurrent sessions and workshops that afternoon, followed by the Regional Meet & Greet and vendor reception.

Friday will be filled with concurrent sessions and workshops, and we are excited for our opening
keynote speaker, Cicely Lewis.
She is the 2020 SLJ School Librarian of the Year and the founder of the #ReadWoke movement. We have a great lineup of authors for our panel discussion Friday afternoon
and evening autograph session and vendor reception.

Saturday will start with some additional concurrent sessions and workshops, and our conference will culminate with a luncheon featuring Newbery Medal winning author Matt de la Peña.
