Children’s Literary Salon: 90-Second Newbery Film Festival!

In just 9 days the Children’s Literary Salon at EPL will be up and running again.  And, as ever, you can watch the proceedings live from your very own home computer right here.

This month, we’re celebrating the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival in all its shameless glory.  Explained thusly:


Even better news, the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival now has a full-featured website of its own. It indexes and makes searchable all the great movies received over the years, complete with judges’ commentary. The new website also features event listings, links to further moviemaking resources, contest rules, a gallery of the best submissions, a press page, and more.

Do you have kids who might be interested in participating?  Well, the deadline for the sixth annual 90-Second Newbery has been set at January 7, 2017!

See you then!
