Bringing the Funny . . . Twice!
Have plans this weekend? That’s a pity. I sure wish you could drop those plans because I have TWO (count ’em) TWO panels that I’m moderating on Saturday and Sunday and they both have the same topic: Funny Books.
How did this happen? I have no idea, but I do find it amusing how some things shake out. If you’re interested, here’s the info on both events:
Children’s Literary Salon – Bringing the Funny
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Children’s Center at 42nd Street (Map and directions)
Ground Floor, Room 84
Fully accessible to wheelchairs
This event will be held in the Berger Forum (Room 227)
And then the next day . . . .
You’ve Got to Be Kidding
Former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka (Spaceheadz), National Book Award finalist E. Lockhart (The Treasure Map of Boys), and Mac Barnett (The Brixton Brothers) take on the absurdity of life in books and writing, and talk about their ways of making us laugh, including hamster space aliens and panicky smart alecks. Moderated by Betsy Bird.
