A Picture Book Workshop with Chris Barton

Chris reading from The Day-Glo Brothers

Whether he's wearing his Day-Glo lime-green tie or a purple polo or a more tailored suit jacket, one thing is for certain, Bestselling author Chris Barton knows how to address and engage children with his award-winning looks. I mean books!

With more awards than Jim Henson and the Muppets (okay, not yet, but very very close), Chris Barton knows a thing or two about what it takes to produce quality literature and tell a story. He's worked hard and it shows. And the Austin SCBWI chapter is thrilled that he chose to share one of his workshops "You Don't Have to Choose: Balancing Playful Picture Books with Rigorous Research" with Austinites. Click HERE for all the details for the Saturday, June 30th 2012 event.

His blog post "Building A Better Research Process" is just a glimpse at the kind of fabulous content we can expect. Informative, organized, hands-on with a shot or two of humor rolled in for good measure. Last year, Chris taught a 3-day workshop at the Southampton Children's Literature Conference and the literary circuit has been abuzz ever since.

Don't miss this opportunity. Register today (early bird cut-off is May 31). Maybe you'll be the next award-winning author and Chris will be congratulating you. Click HERE for Chris's reading list on his blog Bartography and come prepared to work!
