History, Nonfiction, and More

Nonfiction Matters is Marc Aronson’s brand new blog at SLJ.  As of this writing there are three posts, two (on history in schools) which provoked me to respond in the comments.  Marc is straightforward about his passion for history, a passion I share for reasons similar to his.  Years ago when Marc was on child_lit we’d have a great time arguing about various things. (He tended to argue from the book editor/writer/creator POV while I argued more from the teacher/young reader POV.)  I learned a lot from Marc during this discussions and so I look forward to having an opportunity to discuss things again on his blog.

Wolves in the Wall Video

Neil Gaiman pointed me to this video of the theatrical version of his picture book, The Wolves in the Wall which will be at NYC’s New Victory Theater this coming October. I think this is a perfect event for a field trip? Anyone game? (Tickets for nonmembers go on sale in August.)
