We’re getting excited to head down to New Orleans this week for the American Library Association Annual Conference. New Orleans has always been one of my favorite cities, and I’m looking forward to
eating piles of beignets meeting many awesome librarians while we’re down there. If you’ll be there too, please stop by booth #1132 to say hello! Here’s what we’ll have going on:
SATURDAY, 2-3PM: Under the Mesquite ARC signing and giveaway with debut author Guadalupe Garcia McCall. This is a PHENOMENAL book – it made me cry right at my desk – so you’ll definitely want to snag a copy.
Will you be heading down to Orlando this year for the International Reading Association Annual conference? If so, we’d love to see you!
Join us in our Exhibitor Session with elementary school principal Jerry Michel: That Which Makes Us Differ Makes Us Stronger
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 • 9:00-10:00 AM • West Building, W207-A
Explore how instruction that features culturally diverse literature and resources increases students’ capacity for learning and future success. Jerry will discuss current research on culturally responsive classroom instruction, the influence of culturally responsive teaching on student engagement, and how to build on students’ cultural strengths.
For anyone who will be in or around Southeastern Massachusetts tomorrow, stop by Baker Books in Dartmouth, MA around 2 pm for the Seaside Dream book launch and a signing with Janet Costa Bates!
