Attending the ALA Annual Conference this month? You are invited to attend "Cuentame un Cuentito," a cross border look at Spanish children's books from Mexico and the U.S. The panel will be part of the REFORMA program on Saturday, June 29th.
Judy Goldman, children’s author from Mexico who has published a number of books in both Mexico and the U.S.
René Saldaña, Jr, children's and YA author and associate professor of language and literacy at Texas Tech University.
Tim Wadham, Director of the Puyallup Public Library and author of School Library Journal column “Libro por Libro."
Pam Fochtman, President of Lorito Books, will moderate.
The panel will discuss how authors create stories that inspire and how to identify the materials that engage young Latinos. It will look at children's and young adult materials published on both sides of the border and contrast the type of books published for Latinos in the US with Spanish children's materials in Mexico. In light of the recent articles in The New York Times and Publishing Perspectives, this panel should be informative and thought-provoking.
Saturday, June 29th, 4:30-5:30pm
