Cool Conventions

Can you imagine spending a whole weekend talking about your favorite books with people who love them just as much as you do--and getting a chance to see for yourself some of the places from the books? Plus crafts, activities, readings--so much fun!

Once a year, a big group of the popular and classic Betsy-Tacy books meet up in Mankato, MN (the real-life "Deep Valley" of the books) to visit Betsy's, Tacy's and Tib's houses. The books are based on the author’s life, and relatives of the real people who inspired the characters also talk about their lives and experiences at the conference.

There's also a Little House on the Prairie conference held every July, called "Laura-palooza," and every other year a big L.M. Montgomery conference takes place in Canada. What book series would you like to attend a conference for?
