Friday in Philly  
So, after the session with Jennifer, Daria, and Jennifer, I dashed off to the next session. Thankfully, it was just across the hall. There was the panel sponsored by the STANDING COMMITTEE AGAINST CENSORSHIP and chaired by Carol Bedard. Featured speakers were David Levithan, Lauren Myracle and Jay Asher who spoke with passion and humor about banning books. Again, you can search my Twitter tweets (#ncte) for excerpts from the session.

Finally on Friday, I had the pleasure of chairing a session with 4 authors: Tanya Lee Stone, Jenny Moss, Loree Griffin Burns, and Kate Messner. They talked about pairing fiction and nonfiction. Information from the session is posted at the web sites of these cool authors.

Friday evening was spent at the Board of Directors meeting for the council. Early to bed as the ALAN Breakfast would begin Saturday at 7 AM.

Happy B-Day to Henry today, too. Love you.
