    Please join me in welcoming author Kathy Stinson, who will share her insights as Keynote Speaker.

Her triumphs include the classic picture book Red Is Best as well as her recent non-fiction title Highway of Heroes, which was nominated for the Ontario Library Association's 2012 Silver Birch Award. Kathy is also a dedicated workshop leader, working with writers in Liberia as well as in every province and territory of Canada.

    Kathy has titled her talk: "An Intimate Examination of Sock Fluff."
