Local Boy Makes Good
We’ve also some news that hits far closer to home. Warren Truitt, my fellow co-worker here at the Donnell Library, has an article in SLJ! How do I know? Because his article inspired the FRIGGIN’ COVER!!!! THAT is how, babies. For those of you who don’t know my co-worker, Warren Truitt is Mr. Kids Music Indie Rock God. No lie. His blog is Children’s Music That Rocks and it is one of the finest blogs on the subject out there. The man’s got talent and he’s finally getting his due. Those of you who will be attending the NCTE Conference on November 17th, you can get to see Warren and I present together on great children’s books and great children’s music. I tie myself to the hottest tickets in town, no question.
