Love talking about books?  Join us for BEST 2023—The Spring Edition, a celebration of Juvenile Fiction titles. Learn about the Black-Eyed Susan Award and participate, via Zoom, in a half day of small group discussions of some of the 2022-2023 Juvenile Fiction nominees.  Ernesto Cisneros, author of Efrén Divided, will be our keynote speaker.  Program check-in begins at 9:25am, and the program will start at 9:30am.  There will be two discussion groups, meeting twice, so you can attend both sessions.
