You know who is super bad at self-promotion? Me, your main girl, Ingrid. I had speaking engagements several times this year and have failed to mention a single one of them on my blog. This ends now.
Did you know that on August 13th, School Library Journal is offering a full day of teen library-centric online programming? Yeah! And guess how much it’ll cost you to attend? NOTHING! It’s totally free, sons.
Oh, and guess who will be moderating the Teen Transgender Experience panel? Me! Ingrid! I’m the one whose blog you are reading RIGHT NOW!
I’ve already mentioned I’m a huge fan of Alex Gino and George. Beyond Magenta is a huge hit at my library (every time I put a copy out on display, it goes out immediately. It was also a Rainbow List selection when I was on the committee) and Lies We Tell Ourselves had one of the most poignant descriptions of school desegregation I’ve ever read (I’m currently waiting on a copy of Talley’s newest title What We Left Behind, I’ll tell you what I think).
I hope you’ll tune in.
~Love and Libraries, Ingrid
