The annual Hubbs Children’s Literature Conference provides an opportunity for parents, teachers, students, librarians, writers and others interested in children’s literature to share information and learn how to better meet the educational needs of youth. Sponsored by the University of St. Thomas’ School of Education in the College of Education, Leadership & Counseling, it is supported by an endowment from Margaret and the late Ronald Hubbs, who have been advocates for literacy in Minnesota and have provided funds for the Hubbs Children’s Literature Collection at the St. Thomas Libraries.
