Location: Simmons College, Main College Building, Paresky Conference Center

On October 2–3, 2015, join an esteemed group of award-winning authors, illustrators, librarians, and other children’s book experts and aficionados in Boston, MA, for the 2015 Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium, a memorable two-day event celebrating the best in children’s and young adult literature. Confirmed speakers include 2015 BOSTON GLOBE HORN–BOOK AWARD recipients Candace Fleming, Marla Frazee, Jon Agee, Gregory Maguire, and Neal Shusterman, plus a special keynote appearance by Susan Cooper.

We’ll take a close-up look at the transformative life cycle of a book: how manuscripts morph into books, how old stories shift into new forms, how youth literature responds to a changing world, and how books transform readers. Attendees will leave with an insider’s look into award-winning books to excite and inspire young readers.
