105 Ways to Give a Book

Booklights, Operation TBD, and Speaking Engagements

Today at Booklights I’m sharing three of my favorite poetry picture books. Three is really the tip of the iceberg, so I’m counting on you to head over and add your favorites to the comments.

Also today, I’ll be leaving a YA book on the bench at my daughter’s dance class as part of Operation Teen Book Drop. On the site are special bookplates that you can download, print, and place in the book that you release. You can follow the fun with the readergirlz all day. Oh, and don’t forget about the wish lists for Ojo Encino Day School and Alchesay High School as organized by Colleen at Chasing Ray.

Yesterday I spoke at a SCBWI Mid-Atlantic PROtrack program about the world of kidlit blogging and a writer’s place within it. I believe that I was helpful and amusing, if a bit wordy. But I know that I had a blast! It’s making me think more seriously about speaking on this topic at other places and, like, how one gets to do that. Any suggestions on doing so — or outright invitations — would be most appreciated. Seriously.

You are an excellent public speaker, so this would be a good direction to take, I think.
