Mark your calendar to attend the second Singapore American School-sponsored Children’s Literature Conference the weekend of February 1-3, 2013. 

Join us as we welcome four award-winning authors and illustrators to a reception on Friday afternoon and a full day of inspiration, wisdom, and book celebration on Saturday. On Sunday, participants have the option of attending writing or art workshops conducted by our guest presenters.

Whether you’re a teacher or parent, a reader or writer, an artist or an aficionado of children’s book illustration, this conference is planned to ignite your interest in the world of literature for children, teens, and the child at heart.

We hope to see you on the SAS campus in early February 2013 for this exciting event!
