Can one actually create fun library programs using nonfiction books? And how does one evaluate nonfiction books to know they are accurate and definitely more fact than fiction? Sibert Award Winner James Cross Giblin (Adolph Hitler; Secrets of the Sphinx; The Truth about Santa Claus etc.) will come share his experiences with writing nonfiction and sorting out fact from fiction in “A Writer’s Perspective.” Then Giblin, also a children’s book editor, will share the other side and represent book publishers in “An Editor’s Perspective.” Coauthor Michael Dahl of Gotcha Covered!: More Nonfiction Book Talks To Get Kids Excited About Reading will show how to use nonfiction to excite young readers, and activities that could be used with the books in a library setting, On the second day of the conference, we will “zero in” on one Dewey Decimal number (the 700’s) and explore how great artists and present day picture book illustrators create their art. Mary Ann Kohl (Discovering Great Artists: Hands-On Art for Children in the Styles of the Great Masters; also Storybook Art: Hands-On Art for Children in the Styles of 100 Great Picture Book Illustrators and many others) will present this day and will even have hands-on art activities.
