YAK Fest 2016

Ok, everyone. You need to pay attention here. YAK Fest is going to be here before you know it. For those of you who have never heard of this awesome event before, YAK stands for Young Adult Keller book festival. It's a great event where authors from all over come and talk to YOU about their books and what it's like to write and who they are and just all kinds of random things. Some teachers give extra credit for attending and others let you replace grades with free 100s just because you went.

Some of the authors that will be there this year are Robison Wells, Michael Buckley, Sara Raasch, Jessica Brody, Lindsay Cummings, Alex London, Julie Murphy, and Nova Ren Suma. And that's only the short list! Go to the YAK Fest website to see the entire list and some pictures from previous YAK Fests. www.yakfestkisd.weebly.com

Also, I am doing book talks with some of the classes for the next few weeks. Below is the Smore of that talk. You will notice that the video links are for the YAK Fest authors. So if you want to learn more about some of their books, check out the videos in the Smore below. Have a great weekend! And come visit me in the library to learn more!

Storybird

I created this today on Storybird.  The picture just made me so sad because this is how I feel when I turn in a book that I just want to keep forever.  Let me know if you want to learn how to use Storybird.  So easy!
