Air Date: August 30, 2010
Subject: Skype Visits

-This is episode #5, yet last week I put out #6 – the immediate news of Ellen Hopkins’ ejection from the Humble, Tx YA Lit Fest bumped episode #5.

-Next week on Tuesday, Sept. 7th, I will be at the Brooke’s Books Readathon:

A Celebration of Literacy 
9 am – 11 am 

On September 11, 2001, 23-year-old Brooke Jackman perished in the north tower of the World Trade Center.

In her memory, the Brooke Jackman Foundation was created to promote literacy among at-risk children throughout New York, including libraries and literacy programs for children who have been victims of domestic violence and crime.

The first Brooke Jackman Foundation Read-a-Thon: a Celebration of Literacy will happen, which will include readers from firefighters and police officers to teachers and students, political leaders to entertainers, literacy experts to children’s authors. It happens Tuesday, September 7, from 9:00 am – 11:00 am, the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center.

The two-hour event will be a continuous reading of dozens of treasured children’s books selected by the Foundation’s newly appointed Advisory Committee, comprised of actor Alec Baldwin, Twila Liggett, creator of Reading Rainbow, literacy expert and author Dr. Gay Su Pinnell, artist and illustrator Javaka Steptoe, as well as children’s authors Stephanie Calmenson and Katie Davis.

    Hi Katie – thanks for the shout out, and wow – what a great tip from your caller about sending review copies to High School Newspapers! I really liked that idea!
    Keep doing what you're doing,
