Just a reminder for those at NCTE. Do come to the Notables session on Sunday (Level 1 E03/05 in the Javits Center) . After we present our thirty books you will get to hobnob (well, chat with anyway) nine of the authors and illustrators in rotating round tables (meaning you get ten minutes with each of them). Not to mention, you will walk out with a free notable book in your hand!
Here’s our line-up:
Ann Bausum, author of the Sibert Award Honor Book Freedom Riders: John Lewis and Jim Zwerg on the Front Lines of the Civil Rights Movement.
Margarita Engle, author of The Poet Slave of Cuba: A Biography of Juan Francisco Manzano.
Helen Frost, author of the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award Honor Book The Braid.
