Creating Modern Storytellers – NJASL 2015

In November, I was honored to not only present on the topic of modern storytelling, but to also receive the Jean E. Harris Progressive Library Award.  It was so special to be recognized for the work done at the Clinton Elementary School Library.  One of the library world’s great champions, Dr. Joyce Valenza, featured my acceptance speech on her School Library Journal blog, NeverEnding Search.

Adam Gidwitz to visit Clinton Elementary

What happens when a librarian goes to the AASL conference and meets her favorite authors?  Did you guess that she would be totally motivated to convince one of them, Adam Gidwitz, to visit her school?  Well, I am happy to announce that Adam is visiting Clinton in April and the kids are totally psyched.  Each 4th and 5th grade teacher has received a copy of A Tale Dark and Grimm to read to their class.  You can totally tell that they have started reading due to  the spike in requests for the book!  Kids want their own copy to read along with in class and to read at home.
