On May 23rd, Susan Larson visited Taylor to make a recording for her weekly radio show, The Reading Life. This show airs on New Orleans local radio station WWNO 89.9FM every Tuesday at 6:30PM. Through pocasts we can listen any time. Our segment is going to air on June 14th. So I will post a link then.
I asked three students of Bookmarked to participate in this event. Two of the students had recently graduated so they are not in uniform. The other student is a sophomore, but will be our most senior member of the book group next year. Don't tell anyone, but she will probably be our next president.
I talked a few seconds about the history of the book group. The students talked about reviewing books for the YA Galley Program through YALSA, a division of ALA, as well as about attending the ALA annual conference which will be held in New Orleans in a few weeks. When they attend ALA, the 14 students that I am taking will have a chance to meet authors and speak at the Best Fiction for Young Adults Committee meeting. It is going to be an exciting day.
