County Education Office Hosting ‘Breakfast with the Authors’ on Oct. 5

Members of the community will be able to enjoy brunch and conversation with world-renowned children’s authors and illustrators at the 61st annual Breakfast with the Authors sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Education Office from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 in the SBCEO auditorium, 4400 Cathedral Oaks Road.

This year, a three-member panel will discuss how the Common Core state standards, newly adopted by California and 45 other states, will affect children’s literature.

Each of the guest authors will then have a chance to speak briefly on the subject, followed by an open-mic forum.

Authors and illustrators who have confirmed their attendance include Caroline Arnold, Susan Casey, Tina Nichols Coury, Joan Bransfield Graham, Carol Heyer, Valerie Hobbs, Amy Goldman Koss, Sarah Lynn, Michelle Markel, James Mihaley, Greg Trine, Lee Wardlaw and Eugene Yelchin.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
