Each March, in addition to working, blogging here at ALSC and at Shelf-employed, I host KidLit Celebrates Women’s History Month! along with fellow librarian and blogger, Margo Tanenbaum.
Active only during Women’s History Month, the blog publishes daily and features original essays, interviews, reviews and musings from noted authors, illustrators and bloggers. Each post is related to children’s literature and women’s history. The blog is a great resource for finding new books and useful links. Prior years’ contributors include Jen Bryant, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Donna Jo Napoli, Betsy Bird, and Marc Aronson.
If you haven’t checked it out this year, you’ve already missed posts from
- Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple (Bad Girls)
- Sy Montgomery (Temple Grandin)
- Celeste Mannis (Julia Morgan Built a Castle),
- Me (the resident inspirational cheerleader)
- and more!
A complete lineup of 2013 contributors may be found on the site’s sidebar. Interested readers can sign up to “follow” the blog, or receive it via email. Visit the site at http://kidlitwhm.blogspot.com to see “following” options, an archive of past contributions, and links to educational resources.
In March, stop here first, then head on over to KidLit Celebrates Women’s History Month!
