Kathy Barco and Valerie Nye will discuss three coauthored books, how they became authors and their experiences sharing the spotlight.

They'll highlight considerations in undertaking a joint writing project, and provide their answers to: who holds copyright, how are profits divided, how are project roles split up, and who gets the best speaking engagements. They will also share their Top Ten List of reasons why collaborating is fun. Kathy Barco is the Literacy Coordinator with Albuquerque/ Bernalillo County Library System. Valerie Nye is the Library Director at the Institute of American Indian Arts. They have co-authored three books: Breakfast Santa Fe Style, Breakfast New Mexico Style (2009 NM Book Award: best travel book), and True Stories of Censorship Battles in America's Libraries.
