AASL Conference


I’m looking forward to spending Friday (November 15, 2013) at the annual conference of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) in Hartford, Connecticut. If you’ll be there too, please stop by one of these events to say hello!

Panel Discussion: Exploring Scientists at Work

1pm in Room Marriott C

Join authors Loree Griffin Burns, Pamela Turner, and Rebecca Johnson, editor Carol Hinz, and science teacher Jill Zangerl to discuss how stories about scientists at work can meet the needs of children, librarians, and teachers. Discussion will be moderated by author Vicki Cobb.

Book Signing

2:15-3:15pm in Author Alley

Rumor has it there will be FREE books, and that I’ll be signing them. Somehow I have been unable to verify this. But how can you resist even the chance of free books? Come on by! Added bonus: I’ll have a preview copy of my not-yet-off-the-presses Spring 2014 picture book with me.

Author-Librarian Tweet-Up

9-10pm in Marriott Hotel (Crush Bar & Starbucks)
