90-Second Newbery Film Festival this Saturday in NYC

I’ve loved the idea of this from the start although I admit I never was able to get any of my kids to make a film. The timing just wasn’t right for us. Still, I hope to be at the NYPL festival itself this Saturday, 3-5, at the NYPL’s main 42nd Street branch.  I’ve met James Kennedy who concocted this idea and, having seen many a wild video of him in action and having seen in person his cohost Jon Scieszka in action I’m anticipating a very entertaining couple of hours. Both because of them and because the films I’ve seen online look terrific!

  1. Thanks, Monica! I’m looking forward to seeing you there! As for making your own 90-Second Newbery with your students — remember, there’s always next year; I want this to be an annual gig.
