The Collaborative Children’s Book Center (CCBC) established the annual Charlotte Zolotow Award and the annual Charlotte Zolotow lecture to honor UW Madison alumni and distinguished children’s book author and editor Charlotte Zolotow.

They’re celebrating more than 20 years of the award and lecture with a daylong symposium that pays tribute to Charlotte’s legacy. As a writer and editor, Charlotte was forward-thinking, insightful, and committed to exploring and illuminating the experiences of childhood and young adulthood with honesty and grace. The same is true of our panel of speakers.

Charlotte’s daughter, author Crescent Dragonwagon, will reflect on Charlotte’s career to kick off an inspiring day. CCBC hopes you can join this daylong conference that will be held at the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Information on the speakers, breakouts, and registration is available at
