If you’re a nerd or a nerd wannabe, Nerd Camp is for you! nErD Camp is described as the “unconference” edcamp. It provides a fluid forum for educators, authors, and illustrators to discuss “all things” literary; get inspired and give inspiration; and teach and learn from one another.

Lots of great stuff coming this fall. Hope to see you at one or more of these terrific events.
