I just came back from vacation and a wonderful experience at ILA annual conference in Austin. I spent three days with wonderful educators and fellow authors like Vera Brogsol, Varian Johnson, Angela Cervantes, Colby Sharp, Juana Martinez-Neal, and Pablo Cartaya. Here are just a few pictures from panels and presentations. Thank you to Macmillan for bringing me and being so supportive of STELLA DÍAZ HAS SOMETHING TO SAY. Also a big thank you to Susannah Richards and Oralia Cortes for moderating the panels.
