I'm blogging at the ALSC blog today with a post on "Putting it all together" - books, technology, creative space, diversity, and kids. Please hop over and check it out.
In other news, if you haven't checked out the new lineup yet, SYNC will be returning on May 7th. As they do every summer, they will offer free downloads of classic books paired with current books with a similar theme. Each week features a different pairing. Week #1 begins with Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, paired with Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
And finally, here's a link to an audio book review that I wrote for AudioFile Magazine. I don't think I ever posted it here. The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story by R.J. Palacio, read by Mike Chamberlain. Brilliance Audio, 2014.
