Last week librarians, this week English teachers! I’m thrilled to be attending the annual gathering of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) in Boston. Here’s my schedule for the weekend, in case you’ll be there too. I’d love to see you at one of these events …
Saturday, November 23
12:30-2:30pm: Books for Children Luncheon in Room 312 (Hynes Convention Center)
I’ll be grinning all through this luncheon, because Steve Jenkins is giving the keynote and because I’ll be receiving an Orbis Pictus honor award for Citizen Scientists.
3:00-3:30pm: Book signing in the Macmillan Booth (#819)
I’ll be signing copies of Citizen Scientists, and probably still flying from the joys of lunchtime!
4:15-5:30pm: Panel Presentation in Ballroom A (Hynes Convention Center)
Reflecting on the Writing Process: Orbis Pictus Authors Share Their Journeys Authors of the Orbis Pictus award and honor books for 2013 will each share their writing journey and craft used in the creation of their nonfiction works.
Sunday, November 24
9-10am: Book Signing in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt booth (#1506)
I’ll be signing copies of Tracking Trash and The Hive Detectives. Come on by!
11:30am – 12:45pm: Panel Presentation in Room 105 (Hynes Convention Center)
Honor Your Process: Bringing the Working Methods and Style of Published Writers to Your Classroom Award-winning authors Linda Urban, Kate Messner, Matt Phelan and Loree Griffin Burns will share the tools and strategies, from thumbnail drawings to field trips to progress journals, that have brought their work to life—and that you can easily bring back to your classroom writing workshops.
