We are only a few hours away from Day 1 of the Kaigler Children's Book Festival being held at University of Southern Mississippi. Last year was my first time attending the Festival and I couldn't wait to get back in 2015. In attendance each year are award winning authors and illustrators sharing their enthusiasm for creating children's books. Add in the teachers, librarians, school librarians, university students and professors, archivists and scholars and you have a Comic-Con for folks who are crazy for children's books!

Well, better get some sleep. It's going to be a long, exciting day!
