Join the YSS "Talk About It!" Book Discussion at WLA
Have you ever wanted to talk more about the YSS luncheon speakers presentation or delve a bit more into her or his books?
Well, this year we have a great opportunity open to you. Plans are for Megan Schliesmann and Merri Lindgren to facilitate a discussion of two of YSS luncheon speaker Bill Konigsburg's books, Openly Straight and Porcupine of Truth. We also invite participants to share thoughts about Bill's speech from Wednesday noon. Feel free to join us whether you've read one or both books or heard Bill's talk and want to talk about it.
All this will happen on Thursday Oct 27 in the ambiance of the Canal Street Cafe (1611 W. Canal St, a short 4 minute jaunt around the corner from the Conference Center) from 7:30-8:15 pm. Food and drink are available for purchase. The discussion will segue into the annual YSS Social, a laid back opportunity to get to know and chat with lots of other youth librarians from around the state.
We hope to see you there!
