Next, I had the pleasure to chair a session featuring Tobin Anderson, Rita Williams-Garcia, Gene Yang, and Monica Edinger. The room was SRO, so I need to pause here and plead to NCTE to find LARGER rooms. Who puts 4 authors in a room that holds 150 max? And not just any 4, these are National Book Award winners, Printz, Newbery, etc.
Nerdy Book Club presentation was next. Again, a small room with TONS of people. We adapted and made it work (but we should not have to do that).
I will write more later when I am not running from place to place. So much good is happening here.
