I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be speaking at the 2014 Kansas Library Association Conference this October.
The conference has a theme that’s close to my heart, indeed: Out of the Stacks: Engaging Communities, Promoting Learning. I’ll be doing two sessions…a breakfast session on finding a book for every reader and a workshop on how librarians can connect their young readers to the stories behind their favorite stories.
As a library school dropout and a passionate advocate for the good libraries do in our schools and our communities, I couldn’t be more honored. Even better, the invitation came from someone I met at LauraPalooza! Worlds collide.
Perhaps I’ll see you in October?
