Judson University: Literacy in Motion conference

Literacy in Motion, literally: Today’s sessions opened with a hiphop routine, complete with rapper!


(This is not live blogging. This is very slightly tape-delayed blogging.)


Dr. Steven Layne, conference director, who invited me to speak here.


Author/illustrator Chris Soentpiet presenting about his many wonderful books.

There’s a great vibe at this conference–everyone seems to be thoroughly engaged and also having fun. Later today, one lucky attendee will win this prize:


A reading corner for classroom or library: rocking chair and bookshelf, complete with lamp, pillow, cozy throw–and *books*, too cool! (Wonder if I’m eligible for the drawing!?) 😉

I’m up next. Time to start doing a little deep breathing.
