This year's Winter Institute, held in Kansas City, Mo., from February 23 to 25, was a snowy affair, snarling travel for the nearly 500 booksellers at the annual gathering. But that didn't stop attendees from taking part in the many children's book–related presentations and events over the weekend (click here for PW's earlier children's book coverage from Wi8).
