The Bear Pond Books Educator Series runs September through November for the fall series, and January through April for the spring.
We invite authors and professionals in the fields of writing, publishing, and education in for Saturday morning conversations with educators. Past topics have included learning language through picture books, researching family and place, historical fiction, and teaching creative nonfiction. Our Resources for Educators site contains articles about past talks, background information, resource links, and recommended book lists.
Have a topic you'd like to see covered? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
