>While there’s been quite a lot published about the first generation of children’s librarians, editors and booksellers, Barbara Bader has had the idea to take a closer look at the second generation–those who learned from those pioneers and struck out in new directions. For next year’s Horn Books, Barbara is planning a series of short profiles of some of these women and is seeking out anyone with first-hand experience with the following librarians: Augusta Baker, Mildred Batchelder, and Virginia Haviland. You can contact Barbara at bbader at earthlink dot net. Truly juicy stories should also be cc’ed to me.
