Wild & Crazy Librarians: A Fabulous ALAN Panel . . .

At the ALAN workshop in Las Vegas—Monday  November  19   1:55 – 2:30 pm!

English teachers and YA librarians—a natural partnership!  Hear librarians Walter Mayes of The Girls’ Middle School, California; Christina Getrost of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library, Ohio; Don Phillips of the Milpitas Public Library, California; Teresa Parham of the City of Pleasanton Public Library, California; and moderator Mary Arnold of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, Ohio, describe the creative collaborations (and yes, often wild, wacky, and very effective!) that make reading irresistible and bolster student success.

What is ALAN?  Only a fabulous organization dedicated to inspire young adults everywhere to discover the joys of reading and provide a connection to the YA Literature Community—one book at a time!  Want to learn more and join in the fun?  There’s a wealth of info at http://community.alan-ya.org .  Blogs about books in ALAN Picks and Under the Radar, opportunities to apply for awards and grants, and a network of dedicated, enthusiastic and knowledgeable (not to mention fun) colleagues.  And guess what—you can become a member with just a few keystrokes, add your voice to the mix, get discounted registration for the two-day author extravaganza, receive the fabulous ALAN Review, and all for a mere $20 a year!  What are you waiting for?

So if you love YA lit (and we know you do), plan to join your Wild and Crazy colleagues in Las Vegas for the time of your life November 19 and 20.
