Speaker, Penny Parker Klostermann
Penny Parker Klostermann is the author of There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight (Random House Books for Young Readers, 2015) and the upcoming, A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale, (Random House, 2017). She loves all kinds of books, but especially loves very silly picture books that make her laugh. She has been known to hug her favorite picture books and seriously hopes that someday her books will gain huggable status too.
Penny is a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). She was named the 2012 Barbara Karlin Grant Runner-up. She is represented by Tricia Lawrence of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency.
There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight was named Best of Rhyme 2015 in conjunction with the Rhyming Picture Book Revolution Conference. It is also one of fifteen books named to the Florida state Sunshine State Young Readers Award Jr. List for 2015-2016.
