ALA Midwinter 2015

The Amelia Bloomer Project at #alamw15

I might not see you at #alamw15, because I’m spending most of my time meeting with Amelia Bloomer Project members.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  My days are filled with fascinating discussions about a wide variety of books for children and young adults.  We assess these materials based on four main criteria: feminist content, excellence in writing, appealing format and age appropriateness for readers.  We make a top 10 list from the years offerings and a longer list of however many books we feel met our criteria this year.
Want to learn more about our committee?  Feel free to look at our blog or even stop by to observe.  All of our meetings are open to the public.  Find us at the Fairmount Hotel (200 North Columbus) in the Embassy room.  We might even share our delicious snacks with you.  (Snacks are very important to most committee work, no?)
