Don't Miss The Behind The Book Author Takeovers, Friends!

Have you seen the Behind the Book Author Takeovers that our friends at Follett hosts?  They are something you won't to miss.  As they shared, 

Each week, we’re inviting popular authors to candidly share insights into their works and how their books may be incorporated into distance learning and classroom plans.

There is one coming up next week week on June 23 at 2:00pm CST, which features author Jason Reynolds and teacher librarian Julia Torres for The Language of Liberation: Books as Bridges.  

You can register for this free event here.  And even though the live show is filled, once you sign up you will receive the recording shortly after the event.  

Take a look at a few.....

 ...of the authors and illustrators who have been part of the Behind the Book Author Takeovers

I have loved every conversation and have revisited them as a teacher librarian and by sharing them with my teachers and others too.
All of the Behind the Book Author Takeovers can be found in the Follett Community Webinar Series archives here
With each event recording, you will also find the wonderful resources the authors and illustrators share such as the ones Vanessa Brantley-Newton shared during the discussion of her book Just Like Me. 

Perfect for students in Grades 1-4 and focused on themes of diversity, friendship and SEL, the collection of poetry features mini-stories about girls of all kinds.

Each poem looks at the different backgrounds and points of view of girls. The book is full of her signature vibrant colors and unique patterns presented around affirming and upbeat stories. It’s the perfect read-aloud for home and school.

You will find the Behind The Book Author Takeovers super helpful, inspiring and very special too.
