I was asked to return to our Vestal NY Barnes and Noble yesterday for another 2-hour signing session in the children’s department. This was to coordinate with another Educator Event at the store, with a session with Starr LaTronica, discussing “what books are new in Pre-K-4th and how to use them in your classroom.”
I had the honor of meeting Ms. LaTronica at the conclusion of her presentation
According to this Chicago Press Release she has just been elected President of the ALSC for 2013-14. “Starr LaTronica, youth services/outreach manager, Four County Library System, Vestal, N.Y., has been elected vice president/president-elect of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).”
I was able to give her copies of my four books, and she has promised to evaluate and share with the area libraries. What a wonderful opportunity to share my books with children!
And very thrilling to me is that my books are now on display and available in the Barnes & Noble in Vestal, NY. This has been a long-time ambition, and I am so pleased that they are now part of the store!
