Big Island Booktalk

April 29, 2007

I love the neighbor islands. The Big Island booktalk went well. Enthusiastic students, librarians, and teachers welcomed us to their school. We had a total of 4 sessions the longest 60 minutes and the shortest about 45 minutes. There were several classes in each session mixed with 9th, 10th, and some 11th graders. Booktalking went quickly because I was tag-team booktalking with Linda.

Again my non-fiction was the most popular and got the best reaction. Kenji Kawakami’s Big Bento Box of Unuseless Japanese Inventions is a hit with the teens. Other ones that got a good response were With A Little Luck by Dennis Fradin, Invisible Enemies by Jeanette Farrell and my Optical Illusions book. I can’t wait until the next booktalk! Wooo hoooo!
