Our guest speaker for January is Claudia Mills. Claudia is the author of 60 books for young readers, including most recently middle-grade novels Zero Tolerance and Write This Down, and two chapter-book series, “Franklin School Friends” and “After-School Superstars.” Her books have been named Notable Books of the Year by the American Library Association and Best Books of the Year by the Bank Street College of Education; they have been translated into half a dozen languages and nominated for scores of state readers’ choice awards. Claudia is also a professor emerita of philosophy at the University of Colorado and a faculty member in the graduate programs in children’s literature at Hollins University. She has written all her books between 5 and 7 in the morning, while drinking Swiss Miss hot chocolate.

Claudia will be presenting on a topic that we all need in our busy lives: How to Have a Joyful Career in an Hour a Day!

After the presentation, everyone will have a chance to meet the writers and illustrators of our chapter with an informal meet-and-greet. If time permits, we may even try to do an online icebreaker!
