Today! The Children’s Literary Salon: Talking Across Literary Borders

The Children’s Literary Salon is pleased to announce our program today at 2:00:

Connect The Dots: Who’s Who? Talking Books Across Literary Borders

How do booksellers, librarians (school and public), and bloggers discover, promote, and discuss great books for kids? How does communication between these different occupations help an author get their name out and show the value of their books to a wider public audience of readers and buyers? Hear what panelists Marilyn Ackerman (Brooklyn Public Library), Barbara Auerbach (school librarian), Erica Kylander-Clark (parental blogger), Rebecca Fitting (Greenlight Bookstore), and Melanie Hope Greenberg (author/illustrator) have to say about children’s literature across occupations and how communication across literary borders benefits everyone.

This event will be held in the Berger Forum on the second floor of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd Street and 5th Avenue.  More information here.

  1. I hope you’ll share some of the insights with your readers after the event. I wish I could attend but California is a long way from the Stephen A. Schwarzman building. I love the idea of communication across the literary borders – as a speech therapist, communication is one of my specialties and I there is no conversation I enjoy more than one about children’s literature.
