On the Red Carpet

If you weren’t able to attend the 2011 Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder, you can read the speeches in The Horn Book or Children & Libraries.

Of course, part of the fun of the celebration is hearing the authors and illustrators. But part of the fun is also being able to meet fellow members of the children’s literature community. Thanks to KidLit on the Red Carpet (Jim Averbeck, Kristin Clark Venuti, and Katie Davis), everyone can see the stylish clothing and hear the reactions of those who attended! Just head over to Kidlit on the Red Carpet for your viewing pleasure; people such as Ellen Hopkins, Kirby Larson, David Diaz, Sondy Ecklund and me appear! (Yes, me, always with the self promotion.)

If you prefer FaceBook, the videos are also available there to like and share.
