Children’s Services Division at the Long Island Library Conference

Register today for the Long Island Library Conference and be sure to attend the program our group is sponsoring:

“Bring ‘Em Back Alive:  Writing History for Young Peoplewith author Doreen RappaportImage
Time: 3:00-4:00
Salons: 7, 8, 9 & 10

How do writers motivate children to read history?  How do authors get the most-up-to-date research and then find the right style to tell the story in, a style that will excite our students?  How do we write for the very young without “dumbing down?”  Come follow Doreen Rappaport as shares her writing process from conception through the finished book.

Doreen Rappaport, award-winning author of children’s books known to educators, parents, children and young adult readers for books that celebrate multiculturalism, the retelling of folktales and myths, history, the lives of world leaders and the stories of those she calls “not-yet-celebrated.”

Our division will also have a table at the conference where you can enter raffles to win fun gift baskets, get some freebies and purchase Doreen’s books. Don’t forget to stop by!
