Singapore American School’s Children’s Literature Conference 2012

For those of you who may be in Singapore, you might be interested to attend what-is-bound-to-be-a-fabulous conference as organized by the Singapore American School. Here is the flyer for more details:

Just look at that list! Eric Rohmann! Pam Muñoz Ryan! How I wish I can come too! Registration is open until 7 February 2012. For more information, click here to be taken to their website.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).

  1. Wow! This sounds great! I would have loved to be in Singapore to attend it. Do you all happen to know if this conference is going to happen again in 2013?

    • Hi Florence, I think this happens annually. You might be interested to attend the Asian Festival of Children’s Content though which will happen this May 2012. Lots of really great names coming over for that Festival. 🙂
