November saw multiple book loving conferences across the states. David Elliott spoke about his upcoming title VOICES: The Final Hours of Joan of Arc at ALAN. This novel in verse is bound to be a hit in classrooms when it comes out in March 2019.
Terry Farish poses with some readers at Dr. Crisp School in Nashua, NH at a recent CLiF (Children’s Literacy Foundation) presentation. At this visit, Terry shared Joseph’s Big Ride, which is a book about a refugee who arrives in America and is faced with a whole new culture and many new experiences. This book is part of the I’m Your Neighbor Welcoming Library of Portland Maine. It looks like the book was well-received at the Dr. Crisp school!
