Yay, a morning off!! Cammen and I went cross country skiing at Morse Farm - powdered white fields, quiet forests, groomed trails! What more could a Canadian girl want, eh? (you can rent equipment right there)
Lecture #1 Tobin Anderson: Heavy stuff - literary theory and how it affects and informs our writing
Lecture #2 Shelley Tanaka - Amazing lecture that sampled picture books from around the world offering us a glimpse into how creative and unique they are. The lecture challenged us to educate ourselves on what is being written for kids all around the world - not just in Canada or the States.
Met with Julie one on one. Listened to Grad Assistants, Grads, and student readings - Seriously talented people here (ps: the grad ass. read from their published books!)
