conferences galore

A Is for Anansi was a great success—you can read my summary of the conference here, and there are some photos here.

I am very grateful for the good friends and engaged educators who made last week’s conferences a success.  Amy Bowllan was the perfect host/emcee for the diversity symposium at The Hewitt School, and we had a really good conversation about multicultural books with librarians, Wade Hudson of Just Us Books, and Hannah Ehrlich of Lee & Low.  Amy has posted a list of resources on her blog, so check it out.  Afterward, Amy and her daughter graciously escorted me out to Queens, and Lyn Miller-Lachmann was another fabulous hostess; we left early the next morning for the New England Conference on Multicultural Education.  Lyn and I presented on “Migration, Identity, and Return,” and got a warm reception from the educators in attendance.

Now it’s time to get back to writing!  I’m hoping to reach 60K words by the end of the month (I’m at 53K now)…
