Beyond the Books: Bringing Fantasy Literature Alive in Your Library and Classroom

I’m speaking next weekend at The Donnell Library Center – Central Children’s Room on fantasy books and movies. Here’s the official announcement:

Calling all librarians, teachers and children’s/young adult literature fans!

Please join us next Saturday afternoon for the latest Children’s and Young Adult Literature Cafe event!

Beyond the Books: Bringing Fantasy Literature Alive in Your Library and Classroom
Saturday, February 16 at 2:00 pm
The Donnell Library Center – Central Children’s Room (2nd Floor)
20 West 53rd Street
New York, NY 10019

Monica Edinger, children’s literature expert and 4th grade teacher at the Dalton School, will be presenting her ideas and experiences in sharing fantasy literature with children. In recent years, classics such as The Wizard of Oz , The Golden Compass and Alice In Wonderland have been given new life in other media. Monica will show how to introduce these titles to children by sharing different text formats and incorporating online and cinematic elements.

  3. c16rc, how smart of you to comment here. (Everyone else — this is a very smart student of mine. They just got school email accounts on Monday and are working out the kinks on how to use it.)

    Susan, be wonderful to finally meet face to face!

    Hope to see you on Saturday. I’m on the Donnell mailing list and have already sent out the invitation to others from Library Connections. I hope that a few other people can come too!
