Pick Me! Pick Me! NCTE Annual Convention Plea.
Anyone out there coming to the NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) Conference here in New York City in mid-November? If so, are you planning on doing anything between the hours of 11 AM and 12:15 on that Saturday? If not, why not see me speak on a panel about cool children’s books, albums, and blogging?
Yep. Here’s a lovely flyer telling all. I’ll be talking about those children’s titles that came out this year and rendered assunder every attempt made to categorize them. Books like Hugo Cabret, Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf, Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!, and more. Even better, I’m presenting with my co-worker Warren Truitt, who is perhaps one of the finest reviewers of hip children’s albums out there. There’s never been a better time to bone up on your cool indie kiddie rock bands. FYI.
