"The Write Stuff: An Author's Lessons in Literacy”
Presenter: Dianne de Las Casas

We are in for a wonderful treat in our show this week with a very special guest presentation by Dianne de Las Casas. Dianne has been doing author-in-residence residencies at schools throughout Louisiana for over 16 years. During her week at the schools, she has the students explore many ways of incorporating literacy lessons with game design, writers' workshop, and performance art through her fun and creative lessons. The students also learn about fractured fairytales and how to write them, which is a genre many of her own books are about. Each and every student feels like an author by the time Dianne's week is over. Dianne will share her experiences as an author-in-residence at schools and inspire attendees with her fun lessons in literacy.

Dianne de Las Casas is a Kidlit Author, Founder of Picture Book Month, Manager of Kid Chef Eliana, Storyteller, Speaker, Literacy Advocate, Traveler, Foodie & Mom, Harvey LA (New Orleans). A champion for literacy, she is the founder of the international initiative, Picture Book Month, which celebrates picture books during the month of November. She is the author of twelve children’s picture books including best-selling titles: The Cajun Cornbread Boy, Mama’s Bayou, There’s A Dragon in the Library, and Dinosaur Mardi Gras. Her latest titles are The Little “Read” Hen, The House that Santa Built, and Cinderellaphant all by Pelican Publishing. Her twelve award-winning professional development books for teachers and librarians published by Libraries Unlimited include the best-selling Handmade Tales: Stories to Make, award-winning Scared Silly: 25 Tales to Tickle and Thrill, and acclaimed A is for Alligator: Draw and Tell Tales from A-Z. Handmade Tales 2: More Stories to Make and Take is her latest professional development title.

Dianne has also created numerous storytelling CDs that have won multiple parenting awards and have received rave reviews. She was recently honored with a listing in the Great Lives in History Series (Salem Press, 2012) in the Asian and Pacific Islander American edition. She is the mother of illustrator and graphic designer, Soleil Lisette, and 15-year-old culinary sensation, Kid Chef Eliana. Dianne loves crafting and cooking, and enjoys time in the kitchen with Eliana. Her specialties: Writing for the children's market, writing teacher and librarian resource materials, performances and residencies for children in grades PK-8, and Teacher and Librarian Training.
