Other Good Stuff

Registration is now open for Kidlicton 2017 in Hershey, PA the first weekend in November!  If you are interesting in presenting, please contact me--charlotteslibrary at gmail.com  (I'm the program organizer).  I have a few nascent panels that could use more folks (authors, bloggers, librarians, teachers, etc.)--one discussing gender (the boys book/girl book issue), one discussing historical fiction, a STEM book panel, and a panel on reader age (what's the difference between middle grade/YA and YA/adult?).  Other ideas welcome too!

Writers of color--Lee and Low Books New Visions and New Voices awards are accepting submissions

If you like Narnia, here are suggestions for other books at Semicolon

At Once Upon a Blog, a look at the new animated movie from Japan, Mary and the Witch's flower, which is based on one of my most favorite childhood books, The Little Broomstick, by Mary Stewart.

and you've probably already seen the trailer for the new Wrinkle in Time trailer, but if not, you can here.
