The New Yorker's Susan Orlean & Her Chickens
Poetry Friday: 2 Tongue Twisters

Coffee Talk, September 22nd

Some weeks get so newsy: 

A can't-miss interview with Mary Norris, one of the New Yorker's copy editors, at Andy Ross's blog, Ask the Agent.

The new MacArthur Fellows were announced. (They are the genius-grant people.)

Down with popularity contests (of the blog variety), at Chasing Ray and Jen Robinson's Book Page.

It's officially autumn. I just like that fact.

A great conversation between Justine Larbalestier and Doret Canton (of The Happy Nappy Bookseller blog) about girls, sports, and books, at the Liar author's blog.

Nominations for the 2009 Cybils open October 1st. Anyone can nominate a book in a number of categories. (Cybils = Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards)

An interview at Powell's with David Sibley, author of the brand-new book The Sibley Guide to Trees, and other guidebooks. Sibley is our era's Roger Tory Peterson.

Coming up: Banned Books Week, Celebrate the Freedom to Read, sponsored by the American Library Association, September 26th-October 3rd

Over at PBS Parents' Booklights, I write about a Pied Piper children's librarian and her current read-aloud recommendations.
