More blatant self promotion!

I will be presenting at two different sessions for the NJLA Library Conference, both on Tuesday, May 3:

Best of the Best Fiction for Young Adults, 1:30 to 2:20, with Bonnie Kunkel & Sharon Rawlins. Bonnie, Sharon and I will booktalk our top favorites among the 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults winners(formerly the Best Books for Young Adults.)

Accessible Story Hours and Programs, 4:30 to 5:20, with Jennifer Servello. I’ll discuss accessible storyhours and programs for children and families who are blind or low vision, including book recommendations, as well as using tactile graphics and other materials. Jen will talk about what to do (and not do) when working with an American Sign Language interpreter for a story or program. This will be a packed fifty minutes, as this topic could easily be an all-day workshop.

Hope to see you there!

  1. Nothing wrong with a little blatant self promotion! If you’re not going to do it who will, right? Looks like you’ve got a lot going on. :)
