A Tribute to Librarians
October 05, 2007
While I contemplate my selection for Poetry Friday (the round-up takes place at Whimsy Books, by the way), I direct you to a funny post at a new (to me) blog called Derfwad Manor. To wit, "A Shout Out to All the Librarians."
If you live in the tri-state area...ALAN - adolescent literature assembly of the national council teachers of English is at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on November 19 and 20.
among the ya authors participating are: Sherman Alexie, Chris Crutcher, Brian Selznick, Peter Sis, Jackie Woodson, Christopher Myers, Rich Wallace, Patty McCormick, Gloria Whelan, Ben Mikselsen, Cecil Casellucci, Garret Freymann-Weyr, Sara Ryan, Helen Frost, Allan Wolf, David Lubar, Pete Hautman, etc.
Go to alan-ya.org and register asap, or go to NCTE.org.

You do not have to be a member of NCTE to register for ALAN Workshop. The Workshop is from 8 am to 4 pm on Mon and Tues and you receive about 40 free books!
And there is a free cocktail party on Sunday evening at the Marriott Marquis at 6 pm for all ALAN Workshop participants. You can meet the authors at this party...

Hey, Sarah. 40 free books? I'm there. I'm lucky to be part of a panel on blogging, at NCTE. Can't wait! I'll make a post out of these comments soon.
