Join Friends, YA Lit Enthusiasts for Spotlight on Books

cass.pngSpotlight on Books, central Minnesota’s premiere conference focused on children’s and youth literature, is gearing up for its twenty-eight year. Join guests of honor like Anton Treuer, Candace Fleming and Carrie Ehlet Newman on April 8-9 at the beautiful Chase on the Lake resort in Walker, Minn. It’s a perfect getaway for teachers, librarians, Friends of the Library or college students who have an interest in this topic.

The Friends of the Grand Rapids Public Library, long-time supporters of the annual event, are introducing a new fundraiser this year. A large and one-of-a-kind quilted wall hanging, featuring the signatures of Treuer and over twenty other authors, will be raffled off during Spotlight on Books weekend. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase tickets on site, with proceeds benefiting the work of the Friends of the Grand Rapids Public Library. (The quilt raffle will take place in September, and the winner will be notified.)
