Please consider a donation towards our Speakers in Schools Endowment Fund.
A gift in honor of Nancy Johnson will provide funds to bring authors and illustrators into area schools. It has been a longtime dream to connect the WWU Children’s Literature Conference presenters with kids. Interacting with their creative energy and talent – up close and personal – is a life changing experience. Your generous donation will establish an endowment for this effort!

We hope you’ll join us!
