Lara's home...but only for a week or so

Guess who is back? Lara Saguisag!

She's taken a leave from graduate studies at Hollins University in Virginia and while she's here, she'll be doing a lecture series on writing poetry for children. The first one will be for SCBWI and its patrons. This will be at Figaro's, Greenbelt 3 on Monday, 6:00 pm February 13, 2006. A booktalk follows after her presentation. This event is open to all who are interested on writing for children, book lovers and advocates of literacy.

The following day, Valentine's day, she'll be in DLSU at 2:40 pm. On Thursday, February 16, 2006, she'll be in the UP Diliman. Her lecture there will start at 2 pm.

I will be seeing her on Monday, but aside from that, KUTING will also have a dinner with her on Wednesday, February 15, 2006. It's also KUTING's general assembly so I'm hoping to see members whom I have not met and chatted for months. There will be exciting news and updates to discuss and I bet, Lara has so many things to share given her experiences studying Children's Literature at Hollins.
