A few more fun links to get you ready for the weekend:
- The one day conference, A Sense of Wonder: Stories of Nature, Science & History, at the JFK Library sounds pretty awesome.
- A look at Judy Blume’s books and their particular controversies.
- Daniel Handler/Lemony Snicket is the master of the fictional author platform.
- Lesson: it’s okay to talk up your book.
- Are writers disinclined to like technology? I’d argue this is probably more the case of writers of literary fiction, not YA or children’s lit.
- Valentine’s Day is behind us, which means it’s the perfect time to look at break-up novels.
- Tiny, pop-up libraries are so cool.
- Still too many LGBTQ kids feel unsafe at school, but hopefully new resources mean a move toward safer, more accepting school environments.
- A Q&A with Shannon Hale and a giveaway! Love that Hale/Austen combination.
