Conference Highlights

Featured Author, Jonathan Hill speaking on The Power of Encouragement

8:30-10 a.m. Saturday, April 27. Join us for a delicious buffet breakfast and bring the fun and learning of the conference together with Portland-based cartoonist, illustrator, and educator Jonathan Hill. Jonathan has been working in and teaching about comics and illustration for many years. His most recent publications are the graphic novels Odessa, winner of the 2021 Believer Book Award, and Tales of a Seventh-Grade Lizard Boy, featured on the 2022 ALA Best Graphic Novels for Children Reading List and recently announced as a 2024-2025 middle grade selection for the Oregon Battle of the Books. Jonathan will reflect on his first-hand experience as a Vietnamese American growing up in the 80s and how thousands of tiny encouraging nudges added up to make him what he is. This event will be streamed live for virtual attendees and recorded for later viewing. ASL interpreted.
