PPP- Lies, Spies, and All that Jazz Webcast

Written by Deborah B. Ford

ban2016-webinar-liesOn today’s webcast Roger Sutton and I talked about the Boston Globe Horn Book award winners. Celebrating its fiftieth year, winners of the award will be celebrated at a ceremony at Simmons College in Boston on September 30. The following day, a colloquium will be held. This event allows you to be “up close and personal” with the amazing authors and illustrators of these multi-award winning books. From panels to reception, participants learn the backstories, have books signed, and mingle with book lovers from all across the industries. By purchasing a ticket for Saturday events, you get to attend the Friday night reception. Check back at The Horn Book for more information as it becomes available.

You’ll find the press release at The Horn Book as well as the video announcement of the winners. Remember that in addition to providing you with great selections, Junior Library Guild is building resources to help you use these titles. Check out the JLG Spring 2016 Booktalks to Go LiveBinder for resources for these and other great JLG titles. You’ll also find some of the BGHB winners in the Fall 2015 LiveBinder. JLG BTG titles are added to our Pinterest board and tweeted out by following Deborah B. Ford. Look for book trailers and archived webcasts on our JLG YouTube Playlist. This webcast is now archived on YouTube and will be posted on the JLG website/More Services/Video Resources at a later date. Your certificate of attendance can be reprinted by watching the archived video for at least ten minutes.

Join us next time on at 3:00PM EDT August 18 when Leslie Bermel will be back to talk about A Hat, A Pig, and Panda Pants.  We’ll be chatting about JLG’s newly-selected titles for elementary readers. Don’t miss it!
