Just back from the very amazing SCBWI Nevada Conference on the Comstock in Virginia City. Inspired and very thankful for the unique opportunity to join in and participate in their awesome Mentor Program!
Our cozy lodging, workshops and part of our sessions were held in this historic (1876) beautiful building. Formerly a hospital, now, St. Mary's Art Center!
Wild horses roamed and grazed right behind us early one morning, much to our delight!This historic building below is where part of our sessions were also held. It's the Fourth Ward School, Virginia City's 'Pride and Glory', which debuted in 1876. (Photo credit from this blog)
A delicious, old-fashioned bag lunch was provided by the hard-working SCBWI NVconference staff. It was SO great to experience walking through the old school rooms!
. . . another great and fun find in this old school house . . .
