The Georgia Children’s Book Award Conference was held on Friday, February 29th and Saturday, March 1st in Athens.  Authors Mo Willems, David Wiesner, Cynthia Kadohata, Ian Ogilvy, and Brian Pinkney were there and each gave wonderful presentations during the general sessions.   The sessions presented by media specialists, classroom teachers, university professors, Math coaches, and literature specialists were outstanding and there was something for everyone.  So, you are a high school media specialist?  There were sessions aimed at your students and information you could use with your teachers.  Plan on attending next year’s 40th Annual Conference on Children’s Literature.

Are you a Middle School Media Specialist?  Please consider presenting at next year’s Middle School Conference in Savannah.  The deadline for applying is October 1, 2008.
