getting ready

It’s almost here—the A Is For Anansi conference at NYU!  Friday night will be fun because I don’t have to present and can just focus on the keynote speakers and panelists.  But I’m a little anxious about my panel on Saturday morning; I felt I should include some racist images from US children’s literature, and got really demoralized looking at them all last night—stop by Book Tryst to see what I’m talking about…OR, just come to our panel and hear how scholars, illustrators, and authors feel about the progress we’ve made and have yet to make in the field of children’s literature.

  1. I know what you mean. I once did research on racist images in horse racing for a presentation at a conference and some of the stuff was so vile there were days I couldn’t deal with it. I would have to wait until I had a certain scholarly distatnce and then work with that stuff. Wish I could be at your presentation, Good luck.
