Rebecca Kai Dotlich's poetry appears in many award-winning collections, in dozens of anthologies and textbooks, and in major children's magazines. She is a sought-after speaker across the country, and her Highlights Founders workshops in Pennsylvania consistently sell out.

About Rebecca Kai Dotlich, renowned poet and anthologist Lee Bennett Hopkins says: "Rebecca is among the best poets writing for children today. She is a poet who creates poems causing readers to get goose bumps. Her pen is blessed with magic."

Her books have received such awards as Junior Library Guild Selection, 10 Best Books for Babies, IRA Children's Choice, Indiana Best Read Aloud, the Gold Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award, and an AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize Finalist. Her picture
book, BELLA AND BEAN (Atheneum), was a 2010 SCBWI Golden Kite Honor Recipient for picture book text.

We're thrilled to bring her down South to lead us through a wonderful, poetically charged weekend -
Y'all come...!
