Tuesdays with ALAN

Day Two dawns to rainy streets, tourists galore, and another wonderful day at ALAN in the Big Apple. The morning session kicks off with 4 authors for Roaring Brook Press (hi, Lauren) talking about losing and finding the way home again in books. Simon Boughton talked about us needing to understand the geography of a work (and I immediately thought of how that would play out in some of the latest books I have read).

I ran around the room before we got underway and gave away the last of the bonanza of books we all received yesterday. Newbie teachers are sooooooooo cute when you give them treats! Much more to come.

Here is Scout for those LJ friends who asked for more photos.

P.S. Happy B-day to my hubby, Henry. See you later, alligator.
