>Come to the movies

>On June 25th at 8:00PM at the ALA conference in New Orleans, ALSC is presenting a free screening of The Library of the Early Mind, a documentary about contemporary children’s literature including interviews with many authors and illustrators. I think my favorite segment is the coverage of an attempt to ban Annie on My Mind, although the shots of Jack Gantos on an automated walkway at Logan Airport give the whole thing a nicely nouvelle vague frisson.

Sponsored by Media Source (just like this blog) and the children’s book groups of Little, Brown and Macmillan, the movie will be followed by a brief q and a with the director, Edward Delaney, and three of the stars: Grace Lin, Jack Gantos, and Daniel Handler (I’ll be moderating). Then there are free snacks and a cash bar. Please come! At the convention center, Auditorium C, 8:00 P.M.

    >Enjoy New Orleans. Try not to melt before noon. Wish I could go (I'm from the area and still have family there), but not this summer.
